2022 was another year of expanding Impact Fire’s presence across the United States and making thoughtful efforts to provide insightful content to customers by launching the Impact Fire Insights Newsletter. While Impact Fire has a national presence with its many district offices, we’re rooted in our local markets, providing customers with the benefits of scale, customer service, and accountability of a local business. Operating in 14+ states, with 30+ district offices and 700+ self-perform technicians, we have the expertise and resources to be your one-stop shop for all your fire and life safety needs.
At the end of 2021, Impact Fire acquired Blackstone Fire Control in North Carolina and began its expansion into the Southwest with its first-ever district office in this region. Continuing in their strategic growth trajectory initiative, they acquired FESS Fire Protection, which allowed Impact Fire to establish a robust presence in the Southeast, servicing North and South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida across seven district offices. To close out 2021, Impact Fire established its second Connecticut district office through the acquisition of TEC Control Systems, making it the eighth district office in the northeast since its first acquisition in the region in 2018.
Not only has Impact Fire prioritized expanding our service offering in our existing markets, but Impact Fire is also focused on the future and providing leading fire protection services in new geographies. With the support of TruArc Partners, a NY-based investment firm focused on the middle market. We announced a series of successful acquisitions at Impact Fire and its sister company, Academy Fire. Through this partnership, Impact Fire continues joining forces with so many great companies and fire protection leaders in our industry to expand capabilities and geographic presence.
