LYNN — Ralph W. Sevinor, president of Wayne Alarm Systems, and Donald Martini, president of Lexington Alarm Systems, announced that their two companies will merge under the Wayne Alarm Systems umbrella to bring home and business security systems to local customers with improved technology and a broader service area.

“Wayne Alarm Systems is now in its 50th year of operations as a multigenerational, family-owned security systems company,” Sevinor said. “We have built a reputation for responsiveness and top-quality services, supported by state-of-the-art technology, to make our customers’ experience the best it can be.

“Acquiring one of Massachusetts’ premier security companies, Lexington Alarm Systems, will complement our company culture, and the combined customer base will give both companies an expanded service area. Lexington’s reputation for customer service excellence matches perfectly with our mission.”

Sevinor and Martini said combining the firms will make Wayne Alarm Systems and Lexington Alarm Systems the premier electronic security and life safety solutions provider for the Boston area. The acquisition offers increased strength in all the emerging technologies.

“Wayne Alarm Systems’ commitment to technology, and all the conveniences this brings to their business model and customers, will be an enormous new boost for us,” Martini said. “The expanded service area of our new combined service force achieves one of Lexington’s long-term goals. It brings to fruition our concept of a multigenerational, family-owned, top-quality, local security systems company competing successfully with the giant, global corporations that offer compelling marketing, but lack the substance of on-site knowledge and community


Wayne Alarm Systems will continue to provide for local customers. Lexington Alarm Systems will continue operations at its current location in Bedford, under the direction of Mike Lordan, vice president of Lexington Alarm Systems. The merger creates immediate job opportunities at both locations.

“We’re going to have more technicians available which helps response times,” Sevinor said.

Sevinor said trends across different business sectors feature businesses broadening their markets. He said Wayne Alarm and Lexington Alarm are bucking this trend by providing through their acquisition “deeper rather than a wider” focus on improving customer service.
