Bates Security Acquires Kentucky Alarm Services
Lexington, KY., November 17, 2015 – Bates Security is happy to announce the recent acquisition of Kentucky Alarm Services from Ken and Sandy Duff. Bates Security was a perfect match for Kentucky Alarm Services as both are family owned and operated businesses and both are based in Lexington, Kentucky. Both companies have been friendly competitors since the early ‘80s. With the acquisition, Bates will be adding over 1,500 customers to its customer base.
"We are extremely excited that we have been entrusted by Ken and Sandy Duff to continue providing service to their customers. They have built a great business and with them being right here in Lexington with us, our businesses were a perfect fit for each other,” said Jeremy Bates.
Bates Security is also proud to welcome several new employees to its team from Kentucky Alarm. These employees will be an important part of the immediate transition process and long-term servicing of the customers.
