Allied Fire and Security has a very long history as a regional supplier of safes and security systems in the Pacific Northwest.
In 1902, the company began under another name – Spokane Safe and Lock. It was a small but trusted firm, providing exactly what it advertised to people in the area: Safes and Locks. People in Spokane trusted its commitment to their security.
R.A. Hunt was working as a marketer for Spokane Safe and Lock. In the late 1940s, the original owner was looking to sell the business, and so R.A. (Bob) Hunt purchased it from him, taking over in 1948. In 1953, Spokane Safe and Lock changed its name to Allied Fire and Security, the business we know and love today.
Over the years, Allied Fire and Security grew to incorporate locations in Portland and Seattle. Rather than a purely Spokane-based business, it became a highly trusted name in security regionally.
From family-owned business to top security systems integrators
Over the years, we’ve become more well-known. In 2014 we were first recognized nationally as a top security systems integrator by Security Dealer Magazine (SDM). Yet we are still the same business that Bob Hunt created. We are still a personable, down-to-earth, trusted firm. Our products have become more advanced – security cameras, access control systems, and home automation – in addition to locks and alarm systems. The services we offer have expanded.
But our business is still based on the bedrock of great team members, who are experts in security. We have been committed to making homes and businesses safer for our customers, since 1948.
The family has grown in 2018!
As many families do, we’ve gotten bigger! Today Allied has a new owner named Vyanet. More importantly, Vyanet is Allied’s new partner. A partner that brings its own five-diamond, UL Monitoring Center that has served northwest security clients since 1969.
Vyanet is a local-regional company, family owned much like Allied. Together, Vyanet and Allied are committed to continue Allied’s 70 year tradition of providing peace of mind, while exceeding customer expectations.
The new Allied will operate independently, serving local security needs much as it has done in the past. The big difference is Allied now has a partner capable of bringing financial and technology resources to the quickly advancing security market.
Together, Vyanet and Allied will meet the needs of our employees and clients through our new security partnership. We’re excited for the next 70 years!
