JLA GROUP ACQUIRES FIRE BRIGHT SOLUTIONS LTD
We are delighted to announce that we have acquired Fire Bright Solutions Ltd (“Fire Bright”).
Fire Bright is a national provider of Fire Safety solutions, such as fire alarm systems, automatic opening vents (AOV’s), portable extinguishers and emergency lighting, and is NSI regulated & BAFE SP203 accredited.
Based in Cheshire, but operating nationally, Fire Bright have been in operation for 15 years and like us pride themselves on their reputation and service quality. They specialise in the design, supply and installation of Fire Safety Solutions, backed up by maintenance contracts – providing customers with complete reassurance and compliance.
This acquisition marks our first entry into the Fire Safety industry but, as Liam Grant, Chief Commercial Officer explains, is the result of a carefully planned expansion. “JLA works to keep critical areas of our customers businesses running smoothly, safely and effectively, whether it’s in the laundry, kitchen or boiler room. Fire safety was a natural extension for us - our customers had been asking us if we could look after their fire systems and our focus on removing hassle for customers and fast engineer response lends itself perfectly to fire safety. We have been planning our expansion into the industry for some time now and it is great to join forces with the team at Fire Bright to enhance our offering.”
The launch of fire safety solutions will complement our existing heating, laundry and catering services and allows both sets of customers to benefit from having the most critical areas of their business covered by one supply and service partner.
Fire Bright will continue to be led by the existing management team, Wes Ward, Managing Director, Fire Bright says “we are excited to be working with JLA Group, it’s a great opportunity for us. The extra investment and access to sales, marketing and best-in-class service delivery resources will allow us to continue to grow our business and bring our expertise to JLA’s customers, whilst maintaining the first-class service all our customers are used to.”
Liam adds “We are thrilled to welcome the Fire Bright team to the JLA Group. Their professionalism and focus on customer service has been apparent to see and we are really looking forward to working together to grow our Fire Safety division and deliver even better service to all of our customers.”
