Friday 07 August 2020

US-based fire safety and protection company Republic Fire Protection, Inc has made an investment in Fire Equipment Company of Florida, Inc, which is in selling, inspecting and servicing fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems in southern Florida, the company said.

No financial terms were disclosed.

This is the fifth investment for Republic (formerly Fire Safety Systems, Inc.) in the last two years.

Republic investments include Gold Coast Fire and Security, Florida Fire Systems, Aegis Fire and Integrated Services, Pro-Tec Fire Protection and now Fire Equipment Company of Florida.

Republic invests in fire safety companies throughout the US with a current focus in the Southeast. Its model is differentiated in that it seeks to partner with owners of fire safety companies who want to create liquidity but still enjoy running their business.

The partner companies maintain their name and their team. The arrangement allows partners/owners to maintain a high level of independence, benefit from being part of a larger organization with added resources and continue to share in the additional value created.

Republic's coverage includes Florida, Georgia and the neighboring states. The company is actively seeking to expand the platform with the goal of providing best-in-class fire safety services throughout the US.

Republic Fire Protection is a full-service company providing all fire safety and protection needs including, but not limited to, fire extinguishers, emergency and exit lighting, fire sprinkler systems, kitchen and industrial fire suppression systems, and fire alarm systems and monitoring.
