Summit Companies, a Minnesota-based supplier of fire and life safety products and services, has acquired Saginaw’s Bay Line Fire Protection, extending its operational reach to 14 states.
Founded in 1963, Bay Line Fire Protection offers fire sprinkler system certification, suppression system design, repair, and maintenance, and system inspection services to commercial clients.
Since September 2017, Summit has completed 33 acquisitions, both establishing new territories and improving density and operational efficiency in existing territories.
Through its subsidiaries, Summit now operates branches in 14 states – Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin – and provides its services throughout the rest of the country through a growing national accounts division.
“We are very proud to welcome the team from Bay Line Fire Protection,” says Jeff Evrard, CEO of Summit Companies. “With this and other acquisitions, and our upgraded online presence, Summit furthers its goal of providing more complete service offerings and ease of access to local and national customers.”
Coinciding with this continued geographic expansion, Summit has launched a new website – www.summitcompanies.com – with a refreshed branding strategy to reflect the current national organization and the breadth of its fire and life safety services. The company’s new website better serves as a portal for prospective and existing customers to access the many services provided by Summit.
