Summit Cos., a fire and life safety service and installation company, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Arizona-based Alliance Fire Protection Co. and Alliance Fire Protection Special Systems, Inc., establishing a new region for the company in Arizona.
Alliance designs, engineers and installs commercial, industrial and multi-family residential fire protection systems for new construction projects and renovations, and provides ongoing maintenance and inspection services of these systems. Alliance was founded in 1981 and is based in Tempe, Arizona. Alliance is the sixth add-on acquisition completed since CI Capital invested in the company in September 2017, and Summit’s first add-on acquisition outside of its core Midwestern market. Summit is pursuing additional add-on acquisitions in other regions of the United States.
"We are focused on building a national business to better serve our customers, and our acquisition strategy is essential in achieving that goal," stated Summit CEO, Jeff Evrard. "Alliance has an excellent reputation in the Arizona market, making this acquisition an ideal first step to increasing our presence in the Southwestern United States.
"Over our 35 year history, Alliance has built a legacy of high quality work and reliability while providing a critical service to our customers," said Lyle "Jag" Amdahl, president of Alliance. "We are thrilled to form this partnership and move to the next chapter in our company's evolution."
