Doyle Security Systems Inc., ranked No. 41 on the SDM 100, acquired the alarm accounts from Wolfe Safe & Lock Co Inc., also known as Wolfe Security. Founded in 1933, Wolfe Safe & Lock began as safe and lock specialists before adding burglary protection, fire detection, access control and close circuit TV to their offerings. 

Doyle will be purchasing 700 monitored security accounts, while Wolfe Safe & Lock will remain open as a safe and lock shop. The acquisition marks the 4th such transaction in the Capital District in the last six years, rapidly growing Doyle’s presence in the region.

“We are very excited about getting together with Wolfe Security. Since 1933, they have built a great company by providing excellent service and building strong relationships with their customers,” said Doyle Security President and CEO John G. Doyle Jr. “Our two companies have so much in common and we are well positioned to build on their strong legacy of quality.”  

Doyle Security first entered the Albany market in 2012 with the simultaneous mergers of JMS Alarms and LPE Security & Fire Alarm Systems. In 2016 Doyle Security acquired Albany Protective Services, making them one of the largest security dealers in the region by account volume.
