Altus Fire and Life Safety, a fire and life safety platform owned by AE Industrial Partners, has bought BK Systems, a provider of installation, monitoring and repair services for security systems.

The transaction enhances the Altus platform’s presence in northern New England.

Karl Klardie and his daughter Beth have built BK Systems into a leading player in the fire and safety market, and we are pleased to welcome them and the entire team to Altus,” commented John Adams, Altus CEO. “Adding another Premier NOTIFIER ESD to the platform will be a competitive advantage as we look to secure large, significant projects in the Northeast.”
