Richmond Alarm Acquires Becker & Ellington Security Systems
Located in Central Virginia, merging with the acquired company is anticipated to result in double digit growth for Richmond Alarm.
RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond Alarm, based here, has acquired Becker & Ellington Security Systems of Midlothian, Va., for undisclosed terms.
The transaction is the second Richmond Alarm has made in the past year, according to a press release.
The merger is anticipated to result in double digit growth for the company as it continues to expand its physical security services footprint in Central Virginia and offer the latest technology to residential and commercial customers.
All Becker & Ellington employees will join the purchasing company.
“We have known Richmond Alarm for decades and have the utmost respect for them and their operation,” says Randy Ellington, president of Becker & Ellington. “Our values and customer first mentality match perfectly with the goals of the Richmond Alarm team.”
Becker & Ellington and Richmond Alarm have been in close partnership for more than 20 years as Becker & Ellington already utilizes Richmond Alarm’s monitoring center.
“We are always eager to partner with companies that share our vision of offering high quality physical security products combined with local — and therefore accountable — customer service and monitoring,” says Richmond Alarm CEO Brian Vanderheyden. “But this partnership is particularly near and dear to our hearts. Randy and his team bring product and customer expertise that is unmatched in our area. We are excited to have them join our family.”
Serving its local community for seven decades, Richmond Alarm currently has around 25,000 residential and commercial customers, according to the press release. The full service security provider also offers monitoring services through its TMA Five Diamond-certified central station, also located in Richmond.
