Locally-Owned Fire Protection Business Grows With Acquisition
KPI Holdings Inc., a Montgomery County, Pa.-based corporation, has purchased the assets of Communication Systems Inc., a Lehigh Valley-based security, fire and communication systems integrator. The newly formed business Communication Systems Integrators LLC (CSi), will join the KPI family of life safety systems businesses. Headquartered in Allentown, Pa., CSi will extend KPI’s mission of life safety and property protection.
“The addition of CSi to our other businesses perfectly aligns with KPI’s mission," said John M. Lawlor, president and CEO of KPI. "The high-end security integration and communication technologies are a strong complement to our core fire protection business."
“We’re also very pleased that all but one of the 37 staff members agreed to come over to the new company,” Lawlor added. “In this hyper-competitive employment market, retaining seasoned employees is critical to the success of a deal like this.”
For more than four decades, CSi has been involved in security and communications systems for businesses, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, government and more. Staffed with a team of seasoned experts, CSi helps its clients to identify the right security solution for their businesses.
CSi joins two other companies under its parent, KPI: Keystone Fire Protection Co. and Marco Protection Systems LLC. Both Keystone and Marco are regional leaders in fire protection and life safety solutions, serving a wide range of customers in eastern Pennsylvania, as well as parts of New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.
