Protection 1, Romeoville, Ill., assumed security monitoring and management control of 2,100 Sting Alarm accounts including food distributors, quick serve restaurant chains, automotive suppliers, high-end retail stores and logistics and self-storage companies.

“Protection 1’s integrated national account environment has positioned us to serve these customers well beyond their expectations,” said Protection 1 president and chief executive officer, Timothy J. Whall. “The goal is simple — we want to offer the best customer experience — period. National Account customers have specific needs. Protection 1 offers same day service, no auto attendants in our call centers and a facility in Irving, Texas, that houses the entire account management team for national account clients.
