Doyle Security Systems, Inc. announces purchase of the customer accounts of Commercial Instruments & Alarm Systems (CIA Security), a privately held company headquartered in Fishkill, NY. The purchase will result in 7,500 new customers for the company, representing the largest acquisition in Doyle’s 100 year history.
The acquisition significantly expands Doyle’s geographic scope and reach in New York State. Doyle will retain the current CIA offices in Fishkill and Catskill, adding to their existing branches in Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo and Erie, PA and their Rochester, NY headquarters. Doyle Security will welcome 56 CIA employees to the Doyle team.
CIA Security was established in 1979 by founder, President and Alarm Industry Hall of Fame member, John Lombardi, who built a reputation for providing the Hudson Valley with reliable, cost-effective, integrated security solutions for the past 40 years. Lombardi will remain on board with regional leadership responsibilities. “It is with pride and confidence that we share this news.” Lombardi said of the sale. “I have no doubt that the incredible team at Doyle will continue to treat our customers and employees with the immense care and compassion that we have for the last 40 years.” Davis Mergers and Acquisitions Group assisted Lombardi in the sale.
Speaking in reference to the merger, Doyle Security President and Chief Executive Officer, John G. Doyle Jr., said, ‘This is a momentous day for Doyle Security. We have known and admired both John and his company for many years, having worked side by side in state and national industry associations. We are extremely proud to combine forces with an industry leader of John’s caliber and his talented team at CIA. They are the preeminent security service in the Hudson Valley and the potential synergies of our two companies is tremendous. I am confident that there is so much we can accomplish together.
Doyle Security is excited to offer its new CIA employees an award-winning work culture and its new CIA customers a menu of advanced services including smart home technologies, video surveillance, access control solutions, award winning monitoring services and an industry leading mobile app.
