Fire-Us becomes a part of the Kingspan Group following acquisition
Fire-Us Ltd is a Lancaster based company, specialising in the manufacture and supply of fire protection equipment. Established in 2001, the company has grown and expanded its services to include training, site inspections, reports, and design solutions.
With the key directors of Fire-Us having over 50 years industry experience, the company has built a strong foundation, working with contractors across the UK.
The shareholders instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business, and a research strategy was put in place to ensure the right buyer was found.
The ultimate buyer was Kingspan PLC, a global leader in insulation and building envelope solutions. Founded in Ireland in 1965, Kingspan now has 18 businesses working within the UK, and operate in 70 countries worldwide.
Kingspan Insulation’s UK and Ireland Managing Director, Ralph Mannion, said: “Kingspan has always advocated a systems-based approach to the development, design and use of its products in both building envelope and building services applications. By bringing the Fire-Us offering under Kingspan’s banner we will be broadening our Technical Insulation offering by building on the range of tested solutions and technical support the industry can draw on.”
Fire-Us will be integrated into the Kingspan Group, and will be rebranded as Kingspan technical Insulation Limited.
Fire-Us Ltd was advised by Guy Haynes, KBS Corporate Director.
