Acquisitions of A-1 Fire Protection – La Crosse, WI and Getz Fire Equipment Company – Des Moines, IA
A–1 Fire Protection
Summit Companies recently acquired A-1 Fire Protection (“A-1”) located in La Crosse, WI. The Company was owned by Dave and Pam Wiggert and they will be joining the Summit team. I can tell you first hand that Dave and Pam are tremendously hardworking and ethical individuals and it has been a wonderful experience working with them through the acquisition of their company.
Dave and Pam have owned the business since 1997. The company services fire extinguishers, emergency exit lighting, fire suppression systems, and fire alarm systems in addition to offering monitoring services. The company also performs high-pressure hydro testing and refills CO2 tanks.
We are excited to partner with Dave and Pam to continue growing the business with the support of our other local offices in Wisconsin and Minnesota and the ability to offer Summit’s complete fire life safety solutions.
Getz Fire Equipment Company’s Des Moines office
Summit recently purchased the Des Moines, Iowa office of Getz Fire Equipment Company (“Getz”) to further grow Summit’s presence in the greater Des Moines area.
Getz is a well-recognized fire suppression business with offices in Illinois and eastern Iowa. This transaction provides greater scale to our current Des Moines location and the opportunity to offer our full suite of fire life safety disciplines to this newly acquired customer base.
The Getz employees will join our existing staff in Summit’s current Des Moines office and are proud to continue serving customers across Iowa under the Summit brand.
