Indianapolis-based CertaSite has announced the acquisition of Starfire Systems and Starfire Extinguisher in Wisconsin. CertaSite says this is its first acquisition in Wisconsin, though financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
CertaSite says 21 employees will join the company when the acquisition closes, with owner Sue Malek remaining as an accounts manager. Co-owner Darrel Malek will consult during the transition, which is expected to take a few months.
“CertaSite is a company that we trust because they share our values and code of ethics for saving lives and protecting property,” the Maleks said in a news release. “We are proud of the customer service that our team provided for more than 30 years. We fully believe that under CertaSite, our customers will continue to experience excellent customer service and will benefit from administration advancements like online customer portals, inspection management and reporting, expanded service areas, life safety maintenance programs, and multi-location support with a certified expanded life safety technician workforce.”
The deal marks the latest acquisition for CertaSite, which has acquired ten fire protection and life safety companies, with the most recent being ABC Fire Extinguisher in Ohio. The company now has locations in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania, and is currently looking at possible expansion in Kentucky and Tennessee.
