Protection 1 acquires accounts from Sting Alarm

Illinois-based Protection 1 announced last week that it has taken over thousands of monitoring accounts from Sting Alarm.

According to a statement issued by the company, the purchase represents 2,100 sites across the U.S. including food distributors, quick serve restaurant chains, automotive suppliers, high-end retail stores, and logistics and self-storage companies.

The company said that new accounts represent some of largest franchises in the country and will allow it to develop the Protection 1 brand nationally.

"Protection 1’s integrated national account environment has positioned us to serve these customers well beyond their expectations," Protection 1 President and CEO Timothy Whall said in the statement. "We have a solid platform and unique structure to serve the needs of these multi-location customers."
