COLUMBUS, Ohio — CertaSite, a commercial fire protection and life-safety company, announces it has acquired Hamrick Fire Systems, a fire protection company that serves Columbus and the surrounding areas. The acquisition is CertaSite’s sixth in Ohio.

CertaSite says it provides the highest levels of customer service, responsiveness, building safety and code compliance to customers across the Midwest by going beyond compliance and focusing on partnerships and professionalism while providing customers a simplified and dependable solution to managing all of the fire protection and life-safety systems in commercial buildings.

A family business with more than 10 years rooted in Columbus, Hamrick has extensive experience in providing services for fire sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers, suppression systems and emergency lighting solutions to their customers, according to the company.
