Ashland, Va.-based VSC Fire & Security Inc. recently acquired Siloam Springs-based AAA Fire Safety, a fire protection equipment supplier. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The acquisition of AAA Fire Safety is an important move in achieving our growth goals,” said Michael Meehan, president and CEO at VSC. “As we continue to seek out new opportunities, we are committed to investing in quality partners who mutually value delivering integrated, cutting-edge fire protection and safety services to our customers.”
AAA Fire Safety serves customers in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri and offers various types of fire protection and fire safety for residential and commercial uses.
“Since starting AAA Fire Safety more than 20 years ago, I have had the privilege to watch it transform into a well-trusted fire safety and protection entity encompassing three states and offering premier service to our residential and commercial customers alike,” said Sam Campbell, owner of AAA Fire Safety. “I’m confident that VSC is the right team with the right vision to move our company forward and continue fueling our growth in this region and outward.”
The company’s Siloam Springs office will become a satellite location to the VSC office in Rogers, said Katie Meehan, director of marketing for VSC. AAA Fire Safety will be rebranded to VSC Fire & Security. This transition is expected to take place over the next month.
All 12 employees of AAA Fire Safety will join the VSC team in Rogers, Katie Meehan said. Campbell will help with the transition and become engineered systems manager. His wife Susan, who is office manager, also will help with the transition.
Some of AAA Fire Safety’s products and services include fire extinguishers, on-site recharges, monthly inspections, fire extinguisher cabinets, installation and repair of emergency lighting, exit signs, safety and first aid, and first responder and CPR training classes. Suppliers include Amerex, Kidde, Guardian and Ansul.
Established in 1958, VSC has grown to employ more than 1,200 people in 20 offices across nine states.
