Churches Fire & Security acquires Fire Safety Services and strengthens national footprint

As part of their commitment to providing greater comprehensive care to existing customers, Churches Fire & Security, a leading provider of fully integrated fire prevention services, are excited to announce the recent acquisition of Fire Safety Services, a complete fire safety provider based in Bedfordshire with national and local coverage in the UK.

David Murfitt, Managing Director at Fire Safety Services said:

“I’m proud of what we have achieved over the last nineteen years and I look forward to seeing the next phase of growth for Fire Safety Services by moving under the roof of Churches Fire & Security. This move will develop career options for the staff of FSS and offer an enhanced national service for customers.”

David Murfitt, Managing Director at Fire Safety Services

For over twenty-five years, Churches Fire & Security has provided services to over 30,000 sites countrywide, enabling UK businesses to better protect their staff, visitors and assets by reducing the risk of fire through long-term partnerships. Churches Fire & Security supplies a large portion of the market space covering not only large and well-known corporates but also smaller, local businesses and offer a full in-house capability of products including fire alarms, fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, emergency lighting and suppression systems.

Fire Safety Services will be Churches Fire & Security’s 20th acquisition and supports their strategy to become one of the largest providers in the UK. This follows from Horizon Capital’s recent investment in Churches Fire & Security to support their expansion through a buy and build strategy. Churches Fire & Security and Fire Safety Services offer well-aligned services with a large concentration of regional customers and together, are extremely proud to be able to offer a better national service as a result of the merge.


“I am proud to announce this major acquisition for Churches Fire & Security and look forward to what this can bring to help us become a leading national provider in the industry.”

Paul Topley, Executive Chairman, Churches Fire & Security
