Mountain Alarm has acquired CEI Alarm in Reno, Nev. The addition of CEI Alarm comes three months since Mountain Alarm’s acquisition of the largest alarm company in Reno Nev., Burgarello Alarm. This is their seventh acquisition in the last two years.
CEI Alarm was founded by Dave Sinclair in 1991. They are a full-service alarm integrator with more than a dozen team members and 2,000 monitored customers in Northern Nevada.
“Eric and I became friends over the past year,” Sinclair said. “We have talked at length about business management and the alarm industry. Eric has an entrepreneurial spirit that reminds me of myself growing my business over the last 29 years. I’m excited for the opportunities this merger will provide for my team and what Mountain Alarm will provide to the community. I selected Mountain Alarm to buy my business because they are a family business and their passion for customer service is apparent.”
Established in 1952, Mountain Alarm is a third-generation family business with over 300 team members and more than 50,000 monitored customers. They have 14 offices serving Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming. The company is focused on growing organically and through acquisition in the Intermountain West.
Eric Garner, president and CEO of Mountain Alarm, added, “Early in our discussions I recognized Dave’s passion for the Reno community. He has developed strong relationships with the business leaders of Reno. Dave has a strong desire to help other entrepreneurs succeed. CEI Alarm has deep roots in the community and an excellent reputation. I’m grateful we found each other and that he chose us to take care of his team and customers.”
