Sciens Building Solutions has acquired Perkiomenville, Pa.-based Anchor Fire Protection for undisclosed terms. 

Anchor Fire Protection was established in 1978 and provides fire/life-safety solutions across several industries. The company’s services include an in-house engineering department, fabrication shop and inspection department, as well as a 24/7 service department. 

The addition of Anchor to Sciens will allow the company to further expand its footprint in the Mid-Atlantic region, according to an announcement. 

"We couldn't be more pleased to become a part of Sciens with its outstanding technical expertise and geographic reach," said Ted Wills, president of Anchor Fire Protection. "I chose Sciens because they have a very successful track record with the companies they have acquired and they allow those companies to keep doing the things that have made them successful, while maintaining their cultures. This is a phenomenal growth opportunity, and we look forward to partnering with existing Sciens companies in our region." 

Based in San Francisco and backed by The Carlyle Group, Sciens Building Solutions is a holding company focused on the fire detection and security services sector. This includes the design, installation and provision of maintenance services for fire detection and clean agent fire suppression systems in a variety of commercial, institutional and government facilities. 

"Anchor is a great fit to the outstanding reputation we have already established across the middle Atlantic states," said Sciens CEO Terry Heath. "With Anchor's excellent capabilities, we can continue our exciting growth trajectory in this region and further expand our presence in this important market. Our desire to actively seek partnerships with companies similar to Anchor that align with the Sciens values and superior service offerings remains strong, and we're looking forward to the future."
