Ranger Fire and Security makes significant platform acquisition of Syncro

Ranger Fire and Security has acquired fire and security provider, Syncro Group Limited. As the latest business to join the Ranger Group, Syncro will be pivotal to Ranger’s strategy for growing the national platform and bringing on board a management team with significant sector experience.

Based in the Northwest, Syncro is an industry leader with national coverage in the fire protection and security sector, focusing on fire detection, extinguishers and security alarm services, boasting a wealth of experience equating to more than 100 years in the fire and security industry.

Syncro was founded by seasoned fire and security professionals Gerry Bates and Paul Fallon, who have organically grown the business through word-of-mouth and customer referrals. The founders have been instrumental in the growth of Syncro since its inception and demonstrated by their excellent service within the student accommodation and leisure industry across the UK. Both founders will join the senior leadership team at Ranger Fire and Security as Managing Directors and will be fundamental to the Group’s growth over the coming years.

The acquisition of Syncro will enhance Ranger’s service offering with its experience in fire detection and security alarm services. Ranger will continue to execute the build of a collaborative and effective industry platform while supporting fire and security businesses that join the Group.

Commenting on the acquisition, Bates said: Having established Syncro in 2011 and grown the business organically since inception, partnering with Ranger was a well thought out and deliberate decision based on our shared values and people first philosophy that will allow us to continue to invest in our operations and customer service. We are pleased to be joining the Ranger Group, working together to not only bring a better level of service to more people, but capitalising on new growth opportunities and areas for collaboration.”

Mark Bridges, CEO of Ranger Fire and Security, added: “We are excited to welcome Syncro to the growing Ranger team. Syncro is a very well-respected national business with a focused and proven track record of providing customers with the highest service quality for their compliance needs. Syncro will form a key part of Ranger’s service proposition and will enhance the Group’s extinguishers, detection and security services.  

“This is a significant milestone for Ranger in our journey to bring the best proven companies together to provide customers with exceptional fire and security compliance and safety. Syncro has a strong and loyal customer base which it has fostered through excellent customer service quality and on-time delivery of services since inception. Its leaders have built hugely strong partnerships in the sector, which creates a significant opportunity for us to work together.”

Today’s announcement follows the launch of Ranger Fire and Security and the initial two acquisitions of Amerex Fire International Ltd and Ignis Fire Protection Ltd, with further acquisitions planned imminently.
