Dynamark Security Centers Acquires Ohio Central Station
Dynamark Security Centers, Hagerstown, Md., acquired Security Services Center Inc. a regional central station based in Dayton, Ohio. This acquisition adds a significant number of alarm companies to Dynamark’s growing dealer base, as well as a generous increase to its base of wholesale accounts in the Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus markets.
Former Security Services Center Inc. owner Tony Shanks will continue to own and operate his alarm company, Wilmington Security, also located in Dayton, using Dynamark Monitoring as his central station. Wilmington Security was named Dynamark Security Centers Master Dealer for Ohio. As such, Wilmington Security will promote Dynamark and develop new independent dealers for the Dynamark Dealer Program.
“This acquisition demonstrates the strength of Dynamark as we continue to expand beyond our East Coast home base,” said Guy Kline, senior executive vice president of Dynamark Security Centers. “The Midwest is a deep market, and dealers are looking for the support that a dealer program like Dynamark offers.
“With this acquisition, we can now offer many new and exciting programs to Tony’s dealers. It’s all about helping the alarm dealer grow and prosper.” Kline added.
“When I decided to sell, I knew I needed to find the right buyer,” Shanks commented. “I needed a company that would take care of my dealers and be there to support my own alarm company. Dynamark is that company. We are now served by a UL Listed, CSAA 5-Diamond Central Station, and we’re part of a dealer program that can help all of us grow our businesses.”
Dynamark Security Centers is a dealer program serving independent dealers, nationwide with central station services, national product distribution, account funding and acquisition programs, national conventions, training, dealer support programs, and much more.
