Sonitrol Corp. yesterday announced it acquired the territory and operating rights of its Dallas, Texas, franchise. Dallas joins Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York, Miami, Orlando, Denver, Columbus and Kansas City, among others, as major metropolitan areas Sonitrol has acquired within the past three years.
Sonitrol Corp. already has a major presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The company’s operational headquarters, which houses one of its core monitoring centers, is located in nearby Westlake, Texas.
“Dallas is a natural extension for Sonitrol Corp. since we already serve Fort Worth and the surrounding areas,” said Sonitrol chairman and CEO Kevin Dowd. “This acquisition is also in line with our strategy of implementing a direct sales channel in the nation’s largest cities. Dallas is a thriving market and one where Sonitrol Corporation has seen substantial growth within our National Accounts division. We will leverage the foundation put in place by the franchise over its long history to bring an even broader range of products and services to the Dallas market.”
Sonitrol Corp. now directly serves eight of the top 10 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S., with the Sonitrol franchise network serving the remaining two. Sonitrol Corp. and its franchise network together service 96 of the top 100 metropolitan areas in the U.S. and most major cities in Canada.
The company was founded by a police officer nearly 50 years ago. The company’s security technology was created to reduce false alarms and increase apprehensions through verified alarm response. For more information call (877) SONITROL or visit
