Kaizon Acquires ‘The Fire Guys’ in strategic business diversification move
We are excited to announce that effective 1st April, 2020, Kaizon Group completed an acquisition of the majority shareholding in the New Zealand owned business, The Fire Guys Limited.
The Fire Guys have built a reputation in New Zealand for providing exceptional customer service and the quality of their work is second to none. The key services provided by The Fire Guys include the design, installation and servicing of fire suppression and detection systems, security cameras and alarms, and building compliance/inspection services.
Kaizon has been growing steadily in the building consultancy space for a number of years. When the opportunity presented itself to acquire a majority interest in The Fire Guys, I saw it as a positive addition and complimentary to the services we currently provide. There are also significant synergies across our businesses that will provide added value to our clients.
Russell Hogg, Managing Director, The Fire Guys, commented: “I never imagined The Fire Guys would take off the way it has when I started the company four years ago. We have achieved so much as a business and I’m so proud of the entire team. Working with Matt and Kaizon in this new partnership is a really exciting opportunity for us too. The support of the Kaizon team will help facilitate further growth, while allowing me to spend more time doing what I do best, servicing our customers and leading our team of quality people. We look forward to the future.”
No operational or staffing changes will be made following this acquisition. However, as time goes on, we will work together to focus on how co-branding may look and how we can best integrate the back-office functions to ensure we continue to provide the highest levels of support for our employees and clients.
Russell and I have a common goal to partner in growing The Fire Guys business while delivering high-quality services to our clients and offering a fun, safe and exciting team environment to employees.
We look forward to an exciting future.
