Indianapolis-based CertaSite has acquired Heartland Fire & Security in Iowa. CertaSite, a commercial fire protection and safety company, says the acquisition is its second in Iowa.
While financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, CertaSite says Heartland’s reputation will enable it to continue to grow under the CertaSite brand. Founder and owner Matt Froeschle, as well as co-owner Victor Obertance, will remain with the company through the transition.
“CertaSite is the perfect partner to build on the foundation laid by our employees and customers,” said Froeschle. “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.”
CertaSite says all of Heartland’s employees will remain onboard and are joining CertaSite.
“We are grateful to Matt, Victor and the entire Heartland family for their continued partnership throughout this process,” said Jeff Wyatt, chief executive officer of CertaSite. “We look forward to building on the foundation they built by offering employees development and career advancement, and expanded services and support to customers. We are proud to be a part of what these folks have spent many years building.”
Wyatt launched CertaSite in 2019. With the Heartland acquisition, the company has acquired a total of 17 fire protection and life safety companies throughout the Midwest.
