Press Release

Rocky Hill, CT – December 18, 2018 – Alarm New England, a leading provider in New England of home and business security systems today announced the purchase of Engineered Security Systems. This acquisition further strengthens the company’s presence in the state of Rhode Island.

Engineered Security Systems provides integrated security and fire alarm systems. Based in Narragansett, RI, the company designs, installs, monitors and services security systems for industrial, commercial and residential customers throughout Rhode Island.

“I believe that people want to do business with local people; that’s our niche. Our customer’s security is handled by people familiar with their local area; I firmly believe that local service makes all the difference. That is why we are investing in Rhode Island. It is an area where we have a 40 year history and we remain committed to local businesses and the community. We welcome the Engineered Security family into our Alarm New England family”, states Doug Curtiss, Owner and CEO.

Alarm New England is a local, family owned organization best known for its personalized service, community involvement and local police relations. Engineered Security joins their impressive portfolio of companies which includes Intercity Alarms, which serves residential and commercial customers in southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands. Also included are Sonitrol franchises in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island via the brand Sonitrol New England and Voice New England, a telecommunications company started by Doug Curtiss in 1981.

“Alarm New England and the Curtiss family have a strong 40-year tradition in the Northeast. Our customers will now have access to more staff and resources to allow us to continue to provide the same level of high touch service that has been the hallmark of Engineered Security. With Alarm New England, you get the best of both worlds; the strength and stability of a regional company and the personalized service and support of a local company”, said Ken Soscia, who founded Engineered Security Systems in 1982.

SPP Advisors, LLC represented Engineered Security in this transaction. Mark H. Sandler, Managing Director, commented, “We believe that this is a clear “win-win” for both Alarm New England and Engineered Security.
