Sciens Building Solutions has acquired Novi, Michigan-based Elite Fire Safety for undisclosed terms.

In an announcement, Sciens says this latest acquisition — a first for the company in Michigan — displays its commitment to becoming the largest independent fire/life-safety and security integrator in the U.S. This partnership will provide Elite and its customers with even more comprehensive resources and expertise, as they tap into Sciens’ knowledge and capabilities, while contributing significant expertise themselves.

“By joining the Sciens positive growth trajectory across the country, the Elite team will certainly benefit from the company’s robust technical expertise and comprehensive building solutions, combined with our existing capabilities, empowering us to develop even broader offerings for the important Metropolitan Detroit Area market,” said David Sizemore, president of Elite Fire Safety. “We are excited to grow together under the well-respected Sciens platform and contribute to an expanding footprint in Michigan and beyond.”  

Elite Fire Safety was founded in 2007 in Lake Orion, Mich., where it became known as an expert company in the field of fire and life safety services and established a solid foundation in the Metropolitan Detroit Area that has grown to service clients throughout the State of Michigan and northern Ohio. Its team of nearly 80 professionals specialize in the healthcare and high-rise/commercial market spaces.

“It’s a very exciting time at Sciens and we are delighted to expand into a new state with a market-leading company such as Elite,” said Terry Heath, Sciens’ CEO. “Their team is full of industry experts, and we are looking forward to expanding our presence in this region, while welcoming other great companies to our fun Sciens journey.”
