Feedback from Our Partners 

We’ve worked with numerous acquiring companies at Fortis Fire & Safety. Here’s what they have to say about the acquisition process and partnering with us:

“I was contacted by a trusted partner in the industry who said Fortis Fire was not like the other guys. The advice he gave me was, “it doesn’t hurt to talk.” and he was right. So, I contacted Fortis, we met, we talked, I liked what they had to say. I built this company over 28 years, and they provided me with the financial security that I don’t have to worry about money for the rest of my life.” – Randy Nelson, Co-Founder & President of VFS Fire & Security Services

“The decision to sell our business was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made. Over the years, we have been solicited by numerous companies and once we started conversations with Fortis, we knew our values, People-First philosophy, passion for training, and commitment to our community was aligned and would set us up for future growth. I am excited this partnership will provide career growth opportunities to our Piper family.” – Chris Johnson, Co-Founder & President of Piper Fire Protection

“We’re building something that I never, ever fathomed that I’d be a part of. And I feel very privileged to be part of a team to help with this. My experience has been more than I expected. Joining Fortis has provided everyone with the ability to utilize talent and resources from other branches and team members. Having such a large support team has proven to be extremely valuable.” – J Moyer, President of CJ Suppression
