FirePro Joining Halma

FirePro, the leading designer and manufacturer of aerosol fire suppression systems, has joined Halma.

Halma is a global group of life-saving technology companies. Named as one of Britain's Most Admired Companies, Halma group of around 45 companies provide innovative products and services that help solve many of the key problems facing the world today. It employs over 7,000 people in more than 20 countries, with major operations in the UK, Mainland Europe, the USA and Asia Pacific. Halma is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100.

“The acquisition of FirePro represents a valuable addition to our portfolio of fire detection and suppression solutions. Its technologies provide a sustainable alternative to established pressurised gas fire suppression solutions”, said Andrew Williams, Group Chief Executive of Halma. ‘’There are strong opportunities for growth in its existing market niches, driven by higher regulatory standards, and the adoption of new technologies for renewable energy are creating new opportunities for growth. We are delighted to welcome FirePro to Halma and look forward to working with the team to expand FirePro’s global impact.”

FirePro’s purpose and Halma’s are strongly aligned. Halma’s purpose is to grow a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day. Its purpose defines the three broad market areas where it operates:

• Safety - Protecting people's safety and the environment as populations grow and enhancing worker safety.

• Environment - Addressing the impacts of climate change, pollution, and waste, protecting life-critical resources and supporting scientific research.

• Health - Meeting the increasing demand for better healthcare as chronic illness rises, driven by growing and ageing populations and lifestyle changes.

“Fire safety technology plays a key role in protecting people and their environment,” said Avgoustinos Avgousti, Managing Director of FirePro. “By joining Halma, we gain access to new capabilities and collaborative opportunities with a global group of businesses which is aligned with FirePro’s purpose of protecting human life.”

This development is part of FirePro’s growth strategy, to join a group of companies aligned with its focus to protect people, critical infrastructure and equipment from fire without causing damage to the environment.

Halma will offer the stability and autonomy our company needs to continue pursuing our ambitions, but also the support to accelerate that growth.
