Airmaster has entered into an agreement to acquire fire protection services company Celsius Fire and its Queensland operations, Fire2U. Translink acted as advisor to the seller.
This transaction further strengthens Airmaster’s fire services capability, having recently acquired Melbourne-based Specialised Fire Protection.
Through this acquisition, Airmaster continues to grow its suite of in-house knowledge and expertise in fire services.
For Celsius Fire and Fire2U customers, this means a continuation of the high level of service and attention to detail they have become accustomed to.
Airmaster, with 13 branches throughout Australia and New Zealand, offers extensive career path and professional growth opportunities for Celsius Fire and Fire2U employees.
With over 20 years of experience, Celsius Fire and Fire2U have a customer portfolio that includes both small and large facilities, including multi-state portfolios with government departments, hospitals and commercial office buildings.
Between them, Celsius Fire and Fire2U have four offices across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
By leveraging 33 years in building services and HVACR management along with Celsius Fire and Fire2U’s extensive experience, Airmaster adds a further number of fully-trained and qualified fire specialists and technicians to deliver an industry-leading fire and essential services solutions offering.
Airmaster CEO, Noel Courtney, welcomed Celsius Fire and Fire2U to the Airmaster family and said he is looking forward to realising further success for all companies.
“Since 1988, Airmaster has continued to develop and evolve through considerable knowledge and experience in the technical services and facilities management industry,” he said.
“Through strong growth in Airmaster’s fire and essential safety capabilities, this further acquisition of a fire protection services business accelerates this within key geographies.
Airmaster Fire managing director, Simon Rickard, said he is enthusiastic about what Celsius Fire and Fire2U employees bring to Airmaster by way of their skills, knowledge and positive attitudes.
Celsius Fire and Fire2U managing director, Karen Hunt, said she excited by the growth opportunities for their existing customers, as well as potential new customers.
“By teaming up with Airmaster, we will be able to offer our customers an expanded service and product offering and allows us to become an even more valuable partner to them,” she said.
“Our highly-skilled workforce, added to Airmaster’s experience and resources in technical and building services, makes this a exciting time for us.”
