Sciens Building Solutions, a fire detection and security services provider and portfolio company of The Carlyle Group, has acquired Electronic Security Solutions LLC.

EES was established in Pennsylvania in 1999 and offers fire alarm services and installations for contractors, end-users, and property managers. The deal will assist SBS in expanding and establishing its presence across the Pennsylvania market. The business combination will deliver deeper resources and expertise to EES’ established customers.

“We proudly maintain Sciens’ fun, growth-focused journey, which continues with the addition of ESS and its excellent reputation throughout the tri-state region as a customer-first fire and security leader,” said Terry Heath, Sciens’ CEO. “We welcome the entire ESS team, which has an impressive track record of establishing long-term relationships with this area’s customers and are excited to further expand our presence in the northeast corridor and throughout the country. We continue to actively seek partnerships with companies similar to ESS that align with the Sciens values and superior service offerings.”
