The sizable investment will be used to expand sales operations, acquire similarly aligned service providers and boost service offerings focused on recurring revenue services.

The investment by Newlook Capital is part of the organization's strategic focus on investing in high-growth industrial services companies driven by experienced and motivated management teams. 

“We see security and fire services as a major growth market and IFSS has built a rock solid customer base and strong brand,” said Oliver Blum, portfolio manager, Newlook Capital. “IFSS is driving exciting integrated systems differentiated by emerging technologies, is growing rapidly and is gaining substantial market share.

The IFSS team has more than 100 years of security and fire expertise combined, and it has delivered integrated systems for a wide array of mission-critical organizations in Florida, including Key West Airport, Collier County School District and Lee County schools.

“Our recent experience on a comprehensive fire system installation with IFSS went above and beyond our expectations,” said Lenny Grawburg, electrical project manager and estimator, ION Electric. “Not only is the solution effective in seamlessly protecting our clients’ guests, but IFSS went out of their way to ensure the deployment went smoothly.”
