Wayne Alarm Systems Inc., a local family-owned life safety and security provider with UL central station monitoring, has acquired North Shore Protection Inc. 

The purchase further increases Wayne Alarm’s share in the greater Boston area as the company continues to grow and expand.

“The combination of North Shore Protection with our company increases our market share, adds to our geographic presence and provides our new clients with even greater access to new security technologies including video, access control, fire and intrusion,” said Ralph Wayne Sevinor, president of Wayne Alarm Systems.

North Shore Protection Inc., founded by Jim Wiswall and Richard Colangelo, has focused on security services for more than 35 years, serving more than 700 customers in the Boston area.  Wayne Alarm has provided North Shore Protection with monitoring services from the beginning.

Because of the customer service and employee care provided by Wayne Alarm, Richard Colangelo, president of North Shore Protection stated that they would not entrust their customers to any other security company.

“It takes a great team to navigate the technological and customer demands of today and we are fortunate to have a great team at Wayne Alarm Systems,” Sevinor said. “Our goal is to be the best provider of life safety systems solutions by exceeding expectations in our Massachusetts service area.”

Assistance with the acquisition was provided by TRG Associates, Inc. and Dennis Raimo, with financing supported by Eastern Bank and legal services by Finneran and Nicholson.
