Deal expands Worcester, Mass. reach

WORCESTER, Mass. - American Alarm & Communications expanded its reach in the Worcester suburbs, buying Argus Alarm, a small company that has been in business since the early 1970s.

The transaction is a strategic move for the company, providing it with a sizeable piece of business in this area. It also complements American Alarm’s acquisition of Alphatronics Security of Worcester, the July 2003 deal that added an office in central Massachusetts.

Thanks to buying Argus Alarm, American Alarm gains former owner Kenneth Gorczynski, who will remain onboard in a sales capacity, and technician Roger Bohn, who worked for Argus Alarm for 18 years. Gorczynski’s wife, Kristine, who handled bookkeeping and administration, will retire.
