Alarm Team Named to Inc. 500 / 5000 for Fourth Time

RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Alarm Team, Inc., one of the nation's oldest and largest ADT Authorized Dealers, today announced that the company was named to the Inc. 5000 list for the second consecutive year. This is in addition to previously appearing on the Inc. 500 list in both 2000 and 2001. Inc. Magazine annually lists the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing companies in America.



Barry Simmons, President and CEO, commented on the award: "We are pleased to have been recognized again this year by Inc. Magazine for all the hard work and dedication of our team. In our opinion this validates our attempt to distinguish Alarm Team as one of the premier providers of security services in the nation." Simmons continued, "We thank Inc. Magazine for their continued efforts to support the entrepreneurial spirit, which is so desperately needed in these economically challenged times."

Alarm Team was ranked for the second consecutive year at position #1,542, which was up from its previous ranking of #3,992 in 2008. The company also made the Inc. 500 list in both 2000 and 2001 with rankings of #190 and #382. Simmons indicated, "Having a long standing relationship with a brand as recognizable as ADT has allowed us to focus on both our systems and processes in order to provide the maximum efficiency. While market conditions have caused declines in some programs, others have flourished, so staying out in front of those trends has been critical."

Alarm Team has expanded its coverage over the past several years to include the entire southeast from Mississippi to Maryland.  In 2009 it also aligned itself with another recognized ADT Dealer, Eversafe Security, so coverage could be expanded throughout the northeast and over to Chicago. Now the jointly managed companies process over 6,000 requests for residential security services each month.
