We are pleased to announce that effective February 7, 2022, Fire & Life Safety America, Inc. (“FLSA”), a subsidiary of Summit Fire & Security LLC, has completed the purchase of Mid State Fire Equipment, Inc. located in Lake Placid, Florida.
Mid State Fire Equipment Inc., has been providing fire protection sales and services to the Lake Placid and the central Florida area since the 1980’s. Mid State owners, Bill and Ellie Johnson, purchased Mid State Fire Equipment in November of 1990 and have remained an integral part of their local presence, as well as state-wide in the fire equipment industry. Their goal as a family-owned business has been to put the needs of the customer first by providing not only excellent service, but the right service.
With the new location in Lake Placid, Summit Fire & Security now has 7 locations across Florida. Mid State will be an incredible addition to our team of experts as we provide fire and life safety services to our growing customer base, locally, regionally and nationally.
“At the heart of every great company is its people; and great companies have people who are educated, trained and certified to deliver superior service to their clients. Mid State Fire is one of these great companies! We are honored and proud Bill has entrusted FLSA and Summit Fire & Security to not only to carry on and deliver superior fire protection throughout Central Florida, but continue to lead the Mid State team members into the next generation of fire protection specialists who will remain Client Focused & Solution Driven,” stated Stephen F. Frendach, Regional Vice President.
