Long Grove IL, November 4, 2009 — Davis Marketing Group (AKA Graybeards) is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client, A-1 Alarm Services in Champaign, IL by F.E. Moran Alarms & Monitoring Services, also located in Champaign. Brett Bean, president of F.E. Moran, emphasized, “This, our most recent acquisition, will solidify our base of operations in Central Illinois.”
Diane Ruedi, president of A-1 for the past five years, took over the company after her father’s death.
