EA-RS Group has acquired Crane Communications, a fire and security audiovisual equipment supplier based in Northern Ireland. The acquisition is the group's fourth of the year, following deals for CCSS Fire & Security, AST London, and the trade and assets of Essex Fire Sprinklers this year.
Alan Wheal, CEO of EA-RS Group, which provides fire and security systems, commented, “EA-RS Group’s acquisition of Crane Communications will offer us access to the Northern Irish market, making way for further developments in RoI, and the opportunity to build on our existing operations in London."
"This acquisition will accelerate our plans to provide a multi-disciplined offering across Fire, Security and Data, expanding our geographic reach and service offering. We would like to thank Rockpool and RCL partners for their continuous support in another acquisition.”
EA-RS Group received funding from Rockpool Investments and RCL Partners earlier this year which will be used to help the group break into new geographic regions and give the company access to London’s commercial security market.
Crane is an expert in the design, supply, installation, and maintenance of fire safety equipment, meaning the acquisition also enables EA-RS Group can offer new services such as CCTV, lighting, entertainment, access control, alarms and AV, expanding its range of services for both commercial and domestic clients.
David McConkey, Managing Director of Crane said, “I am incredibly excited to have Crane Communications become a member of the growing EA-RS family. We have been incredibly fortunate to find partners in EA-RS who share Crane’s core values, we know that these will provide real benefits to our staff and customers."
"The ability to offer our customers additional critical life safety systems from within the EA-RS Group, as well as the opportunity to offer our specialist systems to existing EA-RS Group customers, will help drive the next steps in our incredible journey.”
Guy Ellis, Partner at Rockpool added, “Rockpool welcomes the team at Crane Communications into the EA-RS Group. The acquisition expands the geographical reach of the business into Northern Ireland, brings on board a first-class management team and adds a team of exceptionally high-quality engineers into the Group. We are delighted that EA-RS Group continues to exceed the ambitious expansion plans first set out at the beginning of the year.”
