The Hiller Companies has purchased California-based A&D Fire Sprinklers Inc. The acquisition closed on November 1.
The Hiller Companies, headquartered in Mobile, provides fire detection and suppression systems for commercial, industrial, marine, offshore, government and military clients. Its services build upon its mechanical and electrical engineering experience and include comprehensive design, engineering, installation, service and maintenance of fire extinguishers, fire sprinkler systems, fire suppression systems, fire alarm systems, security systems and more.
A&D Fire Sprinklers, a fire protection company, has offices in San Diego and Los Angeles, California; Salt Lake City, Utah, and Spokane, Washington. With the acquisition, The Hiller Companies expands its reach in California and adds Utah and Washington to its growing list of states in which it has a presence. Currently, The Hiller Companies has offices in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.
“We are pleased Hiller has been able to continue growing this year. The strong presence and solid reputation of A&D in their markets will be a great asset and will allow us to expand our fire protection offerings on the west coast of the United States,” said Patrick Lynch, Hiller president and CEO.
Hiller plans to maintain all of A&D’s management, staff and technicians to ensure a smooth transition of A&D to a division of The Hiller Companies.
“A&D’s customers will see minor changes as Hiller is introduced as a parent company, but the high-quality service and protection they have historically experienced will carry forward,” Lynch said. “They will see the same faces and names and continue the valuable relationships they have built with the management and staff at A&D.”
