Highview-backed National Fire & Safety acquires Maxim Fire Systems
National Fire & Safety, an end-to-end fire protection and life safety solutions platform and a portfolio company of Highview Capital (Highview), has acquired Maxim Fire Systems, a multifaceted, full-service fire sprinkler and life safety systems company serving the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Founded in 2011, Maxim Fire Systems specialises in the design, build, installation, service and inspection of a wide variety of automatic fire sprinkler systems, fire alarms, extinguishers and backflow preventers. The company provides life safety systems and services to commercial customers of all sizes, with a specialty in multi-family apartments, high-rises and warehouses and a long track record of excellent customer service.
Following the acquisition, co-founders Joe and Dawn Cuevas will continue to lead Maxim Fire Systems from its Dallas headquarters, which will serve as an important hub for National Fire & Safety’s expanding presence in Texas. National Fire & Safety is focused on growing its footprint in the state, and this transaction builds upon NFS’ recent acquisitions in the region.
“As National Fire & Safety continues to build our presence in Texas, it is increasingly important that we can provide services to businesses in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area,” says Chris Gannon, Chief Executive Officer of National Fire & Safety. “Joe and Dawn have built an excellent team at Maxim Fire Systems and have created a well-respected business over the past ten years. With this acquisition, we are excited to continue our trend of partnering with founder-led business to help them reach their next stage of growth.”
“Over the past ten years, we’ve established our reputation by remaining focused on building deep relationships with both new and existing customers and providing top-notch 24-hour customer service,” says Joe and Dawn Cuevas. “This is an exciting day for our team as we embark on our next chapter, while staying true to the values that brought us here. We’ve found excellent partners in Chris and National Fire & Safety, as well as Highview, and are thrilled with how supportive they are of our vision for the future.”
PJ Gilbert, Managing Director at Highview and Chairman of National Fire & Safety, adds: “The addition of Maxim Fire Systems further demonstrates our commitment to Texas and the Southwest. With continued environmental changes and increased urban density, reliable fire protection services are more critical than ever in this area. We’re proud to be able to continue supporting founder-led businesses in this region and look forward to the continued growth of National Fire & Safety.”
