BBC Fire Protection Joins Forces with Marlowe plc
BBC Fire Protection are delighted to announce that they will join forces with Marlowe plc. The plan is to propel BBC Fire Protection to the forefront of the Fire and Security sector over the coming years. Formed in 2015 by Lord Ashcroft and Alex Dacre, Marlowe plc is a publicly traded company listed on the London Stock Exchange.
BBC Fire Protection will continue to operate as normal with the same Senior Management Team and Operational Infrastructure, with their people and customers completely unaffected by this opportunity to take the business to the next level.
Nick Copeman commented; “Following many years of growing the BBC Fire Protection business through our own resources, I am absolutely thrilled that we now have access to significant funding and the support of very experienced Directors, who have a track record in successfully supporting businesses and accelerating their growth through acquisition.
Marlowe and BBC Fire Protection will be a formidable force. We have a superb operating platform in place with national coverage and a large number of high profile blue chip customers. I believe that we will continue to offer our customers a compelling proposition retaining the benefits of agile decision making which has been at the forefront of our success.
The merger with Marlowe also provides our loyal team members with fantastic career progression opportunities and demonstrates to them how ambitious we are. This plan is all about delivering more growth and building an even better business than would be possible if we were to remain an independent private company.
Today represents a significant step forward for BBC Fire Protection and I am thrilled and excited by the prospects for the business and all the various stakeholders.
The Marlowe Group consists of other leading national fire protection and security systems installation and maintenance businesses with a broad range of capabilities in the design, installation, service and monitoring of fire protection and security solutions.
We look forward to continue working with our customers in partnership over the coming years providing customer excellence in life safety.
