American Alarm and Communications, based in Arlington, Mass., completed the acquisition of Malfy Alarm of Falmouth, Mass. , a provider of life-safety and security systems serving some 700 customers, both residential and commercial. 

Malfy Alarm Founders Sarah and Philip Malfy will remain with American Alarm full-time to continue to serve and grow the company’s combined customer base across Cape Cod.  

“This is a great addition to our team,” said Louis Sampson, CFO and co-owner of American Alarm. “We have been serving customers on the cape for decades, now with this merger we expand our local presence there with a satellite office and an experienced team.” 

Alarm system monitoring for Malfy Alarm customers will be handled by American Alarm’s company-owned and operated UL Listed and TMA Five Diamond-certified security monitoring center, located at the company’s headquarters.  

“We started Malfy Alarm in 2011, working out of our house, because we are native Cape Codders who love this area and we wanted to create a sustainable means for our family to remain here, year-round,” Sarah Malfy said. “Malfy Alarm grew steadily, even faster than we expected. Now with so many customers relying on us, the time has come to join a bigger team, with more resources to serve customers. American Alarm was the right fit.” 

As part of the merger plan, American Alarm will maintain a satellite office in Pocasset on Cape Cod to facilitate customer service in the area.  

“Cape Cod is a special part of New England and we remain committed to providing our customers there with the highest levels of security and life-safety systems,” said Wells Sampson, president and co-owner of American Alarm. “As we grow strategically in New England, we are essentially a collection of local family businesses uniting together to protect families and businesses in the communities we serve.”
