On Nov. 26, Seacoast Security announced its purchase of WirePro, Inc. out of Sanford, Maine. WirePro’s purchase adds approximately 1,000 additional residential and commercial customers to Seacoast Security’s portfolio, as well as two highly trained employees to further strengthen sales and technicians in the field in the southern Maine area.
Seacoast Security is now the largest self-monitoring security company in the state of Maine. This means that the people who answer the alarms from more than 25,000 customers across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont work in West Rockport, Maine. These dispatchers live in Maine, are from Maine and are your neighbors. Seacoast Security has taken pride over the last 45 years in growing the company with people from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
“There are no better people to service our customers than people who know what it’s like to live and work in the states our customers do,” said Vice President and Owner Stephen Haynes. “We’re all experiencing the same challenges, same weather and same tragedies at the same time.”
Within the alarm industry, there is a challenge to maintain staffing in monitoring centers due to the highly demanding role employees face. “We are very fortunate to have our own team of Dispatchers who enjoy and excel at their jobs. We know we are doing the right thing by keeping these positions in-house, because we hear it from our customers daily. Our Dispatchers are saving lives at work while raising their families in beautiful Midcoast Maine.”
This news is on the heels of the company expanding into Vermont following its purchase of Mountain View Security Systems in Plainfield, one year ago in July. “Vermont is a natural environment for Seacoast to do business,” Haynes said. “The people, the landscape and the needs for security are very similar to that of our Maine and New Hampshire customers.” The company moved the Vermont branch office from Plainfield to Montpelier on Sept. 24 to be closer to the larger roadways and cities and to promote further growth in the state of Vermont.
As West Rockport-based Seacoast Security continues its growth throughout New England, the people of Midcoast Maine can continue to find jobs full of meaningful work in their hometown.
