Johnson Controls, one of the leaders for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, has announced it has acquired Provincial Sprinkler Company Ltd, a specialist fire suppression business. Based in Cork, Ireland, Provincial Sprinkler Company Ltd provides Johnson Controls with a stronger presence in the region.
The acquisition follows Johnson Controls’ strategy of offering a full, end-to-end fire suppression offering across the whole of UK and Ireland. The deal enhances Johnson Controls’ ability to provide fire suppression products and services in the Republic of Ireland, including access to formidable customer relationships established in the local pharmaceutical, healthcare, industrial and commercial sectors.
There will be no immediate changes to the day-to-day operation of the business, with the intent to provide customers with a seamless transition and continuity of high-quality customer and employee experience.
Said Sarah Dixon, General Manager, Fire Suppression at Johnson Controls UK and Ireland: “Provincial Sprinkler Company Ltd is a well-run business which has developed long-lasting customer relationships over the last 40 years. This acquisition is a crucial milestone in delivering our strategy for fire suppression in this part of the world.
“The integration of both organisations will bring invaluable skills and important capabilities to Johnson Controls in the design and installation of sprinklers. We have a huge opportunity for growth by helping our customers meet fire safety and sustainability mandates over the coming years.”
Gabriel Brennan, MD at Provincial Sprinkler Company, added: “Over the years we have established a strong presence in the region and have established a client base to be truly proud of. Johnson Controls is a great fit for us. By joining them we are able to expand our services and provide a wider range of products, leveraging our combined technical knowledge and delivery to customers in Ireland and beyond.”
