American Alarm gets state deal


Wells Sampson had some good news to announce this week: American Alarm & Communications, of which Wells is president, won a re-upping of its contract with the Commonweath of Massachusetts as an "approved provider of video surveillance, access control, intrusioin protection, alarm monitoring and related security systems."

This means that American Alarm can offer preferred pricing under the state's purchasing contract to any public entity in Massachusetts, including municipalities, schools, housing authorities and public colleges and some non-profit groups.

This designation is something American Alarm has had for a while, and the company counts a number of public sector entities among its customers, including: all branches of the Mass. Registry of Motor Vehicles, the Mass. Medical Examiner's Office in Boston, the State FireFighting Academy in Stow, Western Mass. Hospital in Westfield, and public school districts around Greater Boston.

"Our track record of strong service was one of the reasons the Commonwealth expressed confidence in our company and approved our program for another three years," Sampson said in a statement.
