Sciens Building Solutions Acquires Maryland-Based LS Systems
The first acquisition for Sciens in Maryland, the company says LS Systems will increase its presence in this region, along with the Washington metropolitan area.
SAN FRANCISCO — Sciens Building Solutions announces it has added Maryland-based LS Systems to its growing portfolio.
With four already-established Northeast locations, LS Systems is said to increase Sciens’ presence in this region, along with the Washington metropolitan area, allowing it to provide coverage and expanded capabilities to even more customers, while leveraging the unique offerings of LS Systems across the Sciens portfolio.
“Sciens’ commitment to a Mid-Atlantic regional expansion, combined with our capabilities and relationships, will enhance our ability to serve our loyal customers, as well as new clients,” says Derrick Mitchell, president of LS Systems. “We chose to partner with Sciens to become part of a platform that can serve our customers locally, regionally and nationally. LS Systems and Sciens both view growth as a top priority, not only for our customer base but for our valued employees, so we’re excited to be a part of the ongoing expansion across the country.”
LS Systems was established in 1996 just outside of Baltimore, where it quickly became a well-respected life-safety powerhouse focused on design, construction, and maintenance of fire protection, electronic security, and emergency communication systems, according to the company.
Its team of over 90 professionals are market leaders in providing fire and life-safety services in the complex healthcare, retail, hospitality, higher education and government spaces.
“We’re taking the fun Sciens journey to Maryland, an exciting addition to our many locations across the country. LS Systems is a true life-safety leader in the Baltimore-area with a team of industry experts whose experience positions them well for growth,” say Terry Heath, Sciens’ CEO. “Sciens is delighted to partner with Derrick and the entire LS Systems team as we continue on our quest to build the largest independent fire and life safety integrator in the United States.”
The deal marks the 10th acquisition for Sciens in 2022 following its purchase of San Antonio’s Fire Alarm Control Systems last month.
