In one of our most exciting updates to date, we are writing to let you know that we are in the midst of a big transformation. We are officially transitioning all of our companies to CertaSite. Since 2018, CertaSite has been thoughtfully and strategically partnering with and acquiring fire and life safety companies throughout the Midwest-companies whose previous owners have built for many years (in some cases decades) and who have assembled a dedicated workforce and a strong local presence. We look forward to building on those solid foundations by offering employees development and career advancement, and expanded, tech-enabled services to support customers. CertaSite is proud to be a part of what the previous owners have spent a lifetime building and we will honor their legacies as we elevate their fire and life safety services to new heights.
To date, we have transitioned the following companies, with more strategic partnerships and acquisitions on the way:
- ABC Fire Extinguisher Co.; Youngstown, OH
- Approved Protection Systems; Kalamazoo, MI
- Approved Safety & Security, Inc.; South Bend, IN
- Company One Suppression; Fulton, IL, Freeport, IL and Bettendorf, IA
- County Fire Protection; Toledo, OH, Columbus, OH, Kent, OH and Rimersburg, PA
- Erlich Protection Systems; Sterling Heights, MI
- Fields Fire Protection; Grand Rapids, MI and Sterling Heights, MI
- Spears Fire & Safety; Ann Arbor, MI and Jackson, MI
CertaSite is on a critical mission to protect as many lives as possible and has been investing in these companies in unimaginable ways. We have our sights set on not just our own company, though. Our vision is to disrupt the status quo and elevate the customer experience to new heights for the overall fire and life safety industry.
But we know that what matters most is what this means for YOU - our customer.
CertaSite views fire and life safety through a wide lens, making sure our customers are always several steps beyond mere compliance. Taking a comprehensive approach to managing fire protection and an overall life safety program, CertaSite couples innovation, a customer-first mentality and a culture of training and development all to support our customers in all their life safety needs. It’s a lofty endeavor for sure, but we’re already well on our way and will keep forging ahead in becoming our industry’s leaders.
With this comes an expanded customer service and technician workforce including the familiar faces from the legacy companies that you’ve come to know. Over the next couple of months, you will begin to see us show up as CertaSite. Please do not be alarmed, we are here to help you and make this transition as smooth as possible.
Should you have any questions about this transition, please visit our FAQs page. If you still have lingering questions, we invite you to reach out to your local office or Account Manager and they will be happy to assist you.
Most importantly, if you’re a current customer, thank you for trusting us with your fire and life safety needs. Rest assured, you will continue to enjoy the local service you have had for many years, and we look forward to building upon that relationship and continuing to grow with you as CertaSite.
