Indianapolis-based CertaSite, a commercial fire protection and life safety company, has acquired Premier Electronics, a fire alarm and critical protection systems business in Michigan. While financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, the company says the acquisition is its sixth in Michigan.
Premier founder Helen Gharibian will remain with the company through the transition, and Premier’s five employees will keep their jobs in the acquisition.
“CertaSite is the perfect partner to build on the foundation laid by our employees and customers,” said Premier Electronics owner Helen Gharibian. “With CertaSite, we have a unique opportunity to blend our knowledge base with a technology-based platform that offers new product lines, is professional and rooted in best practices, and provides significant value for customers.”
In addition to Premier Electronics, CertaSite says it has already acquired 12 fire protection and life safety companies.
“We are grateful to Helen and her late husband Raz and the entire Premier Electronics family for their continued partnership throughout this process,” said Jeff Wyatt, CEO of CertaSite. “We are committed to preserve the legacy that these dedicated professionals built and recognize and respect their strong local presence. We look forward to building on that foundation by offering employees development and career advancement, and expanded services and support to customers. We are proud to be a part of what these men and women have spent a lifetime building.”
In May, CertaSite acquired Marine Fire Sales & Service in Toledo.
