Highview-backed National Fire & Safety acquires Element Fire Protection
National Fire & Safety, an end-to-end fire protection and life safety solutions platform and a portfolio company of Highview Capital (Highview), has acquired Element Fire Protection (Element), a fire safety service and inspection provider headquartered in the greater Phoenix area.
Led by owner-operator Clint Slone, Element’s management team has over 40 years of combined experience in the fire safety industry. The Company offers a wide variety of services, including comprehensive annual inspections, backflow testing, emergency training, and repair and maintenance of complex systems and equipment such as alarms, lighting, sprinklers, extinguishers, pumps, hydrants and clean agent systems. As part of the transaction, Element will integrate the entirety of its operations and employee base with RCI Systems (RCI), a subsidiary of National Fire & Safety.
The combination of Element’s and RCI’s complementary offerings will meaningfully expand National Fire & Safety’s scale and capabilities in Phoenix, the nation’s fifth largest city, enabling the Company to better serve the fire safety needs of its nearly two million residents.
Clint Slone, Principal of Element, says: “We are thrilled to be joining the National Fire & Safety platform and plan to harness this opportunity and leverage our relationships in the region to aggressively grow our business.”
Todd Little, President of RCI, says: “The Element team’s reliability, professionalism and unbeatable customer service have earned the company a first-class reputation in the fire safety industry. We are excited to work with Clint and his team to extend our impact and deliver our life-saving products and services to more customers across the Southwest.”
PJ Gilbert, Managing Director at Highview and National Fire & Safety Board member, adds: “Element is an outstanding addition to the National Fire & Safety family, and a perfect fit for the fire safety business model we are pioneering across the US Mountain West and Southwest. We look forward to working with Element’s team as we continue to execute on our ambitious vision for our platform.”
