A Smart Acquisition
Life safety and building solutions manufacturer Vimpex has acquired Sigma Fire and Security and its brands, Smart+Guard and Smart+Cage from Evac+Chair International.
Vimpex will now be distributing all products previously distributed by Sigma including GFS security products and Resettable Call Points. Any existing contracts will not be affected and will be transferred to Vimpex, with Vimpex continuing to sell and develop Sigma Fire and Security’s product portfolio.
Managing director, James Jones, says:
“This important acquisition marks a pivotal moment for Vimpex, and an exciting point in our growth as a UK manufacturer.
“Evac+Chair International has been a highly-trusted and valued partner of Vimpex for some time, and we believe that through our specialist sector expertise, wide reach and established brand presence in the marketplace, Vimpex is in a strong position to drive forward the future growth of Sigma Fire and Security.
“The addition of the Smart+Guard range is yet another important strategic step in the Vimpex mission to become the world’s leading independent manufacturer and distributor of fire alarm sounders and associated evacuation and alarm system equipment and accessories, and is firmly aligned with company aspirations for new market penetration and protection of our supply chain, and to further shape alarm technology for effective risk management.”
