Ferguson Fire & Fabrication announces the acquisition of Action Fire Fab & Supply, Inc. in an asset transaction completed Nov. 16, 2015. Ferguson Fire & Fabrication will conduct business from the former Action Fire Fab & Supply location as Ferguson Fire & Fabrication.
Action Fire Fab & Supply was established by fire protection contractor Ted M. Bolls, Sr. and his wife in 1986 in Fremont, Calif. They relocated the business to Tracy, Calif. in 1990 after building the current facility.
Ferguson Fire & Fab's District Manager George DiMatteo said company officials began acquisition negotiations back in June, a few months before Bolls passed away on Sept. 27.
“We truly regret that Ted could not be with us today as we combine forces with Ferguson Fire & Fabrication – I am certain that he would be very proud and pleased with the outcome,” DiMatteo said. “I will continue with the company in a business development role, and look forward to working with everyone just as we have done in the past. We couldn’t have made it to this point without your confidence in our abilities, and will strive to continue in our quest to maintain our associations which prove beneficial to all.”
Ferguson Fire & Fabrication, a subsidiary of Ferguson Enterprises, offers contractors a huge inventory of sprinkler heads and devices, special hazards equipment, fittings, pipe and hangers. Ferguson supports fire protection contractors with 60 locations and 30 fabrication facilities in 29 states, and more than 700 highly trained associates. Eight of Ferguson’s 30 fabrication facilities are ISO 9001:2008 certified, making Ferguson the largest certified sprinkler fabricator in the country.
The company acquired Atlantic American Fire Equipment Company and the Mobile, Ala., business of Central Pipe & Supply earlier this fall.
