Sciens Building Solutions, a holding company in San Francisco focused on the fire detection and security services sector, has acquired Novi’s Elite Fire Safety. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Elite Fire Safety was founded in 2007 in Lake Orion, where it established a foundation in the metro Detroit area that has grown to service clients throughout Michigan and northern Ohio. Its team of nearly 80 professionals provide fire and life safety services in the health care and high-rise/commercial market spaces.
“By joining the Sciens positive growth trajectory across the country, the Elite team will certainly benefit from the company’s robust technical expertise and comprehensive building solutions, combined with our existing capabilities, empowering us to develop even broader offerings for the important metropolitan Detroit area market,” says David Sizemore, president of Elite Fire Safety. “We are excited to grow together under the well-respected Sciens platform and contribute to an expanding footprint in Michigan and beyond.”
Elite offers fire system inspections and service along with retail sales to help customers find the right fire safety technology for any space. Its services include 24-hour emergency service for fire alarms, annual maintenance and tags for fire extinguishers, and more.
Sciens says this acquisition displays its commitment to becoming the largest independent fire-life safety and security integrator in the U.S. by adding the state of Michigan to its already broad U.S. presence.
“It’s a very exciting time at Sciens and we are delighted to expand into a new state with a market-leading company such as Elite,” says Terry Heath, CEO of Sciens. “Their team is full of industry experts, and we are looking forward to expanding our presence in this region, while welcoming other great companies to our fun Sciens journey.”
