Barrier Companies has acquired two fire and life safety compliance businesses with national service capability. Fire Door Solutions is a leading provider of fire and life safety compliance services and solutions primarily for the healthcare facility market nationwide, while United Fire Door Inspection is a specialized provider of inspection services in the Southeast.
Founded in 2013, Fire Door Solutions provides fire door, damper, and firestop inspection and repair services and related consulting and facilities management services. The Company is led by CEO Mickey Eberts, an industry veteran with over 25 years of experience in healthcare facilities management who will remain with the business post-transaction. United Fire Door Inspection, founded in 2013, is a provider of fire door inspections and maintenance. These are transformative acquisitions for Barrier and bring together some of the leading players in the fire and life safety space.
“The acquisition of these well-respected and market-leading companies is a continuation of Barrier’s strategy to build a nationwide footprint and enhance its fire safety solutions to serve customers,” said David Corbin, Barrier CEO. “We are very excited about the additional value these well-performing businesses will bring to Barrier as we raise its industry profile across the country,” said Eberts.
Fire Door Solutions and United Fire Door Inspection are the second and third acquisitions for Barrier since Lincolnshire invested in the company 18 months ago. Barrier’s first acquisition was PREVENT, a fire and life safety company serving customers primarily in healthcare settings throughout California, Texas, and Arizona in November 2021.
“The goal is to create a leading nationwide platform company providing the best assortment of fire and life safety compliance services to its customers,” said John Comino, a Managing Director at Lincolnshire Management. “These services are critical for healthcare facilities to remain in compliance and maintain good standing to receive federal funding.”
“We believe Fire Door Solutions and United Fire Door Inspection bring important new capabilities and geographic reach to the Barrier family of companies,” said Tad Nedeau, a Managing Director at Lincolnshire Management. “Through these acquisitions and future acquisitions, the company has a well-developed national footprint with fire and life safety services offered to customers in all 50 states.”
