Safety distributor acquired by Summit Fire & Security
Fire Ranger, a Florida-based distributor for Sea-Fire Marine fire detection and suppression systems, has been acquired by Summit Fire & Security.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, Fire Ranger is a supplier of fire detection and suppression systems for recreational and commercial vessels, as well as for dockside use, including inspections, certification, supply and installations, training and consultation.
Summit Fire & Security, based in Nevada, has extensive experience in installation, maintenance, inspection, monitoring, consulting and retrofit services in a range of industries.
From all types of commercial vessels to superyachts and recreation vessels, Summit Fire & Security has experience in the world’s many types of fire and life safety solutions for marine needs, with an extensive knowledge of rules, code compliance and regulations.
Neil Cooper, Summit Fire & Security’s Fire Life Safety Manager, sees the acquisition as a time for growth in the marine industry.
“We’re excited for Fire Ranger to join Summit Fire & Security and pleased to have Sea-Fire as a supportive partner.
“The three companies have worked towards the same simple goal for decades: to safeguard people and property. Our successful marine business approach was of particular appeal to Summit, and for them we can now expand from regional to national growth opportunities in untapped markets.”

“Throughout their regional market, Fire Ranger is a well-known brand and a top distributor of Sea-Fire products.
“This transition over to Summit Fire & Security will provide transformative opportunities for them to grow beyond South Florida and is a promising development for Sea-Fire.”
