The partner companies maintain their name and their team. The arrangement allows Partner/owners to maintain a high level of independence, benefit from being part of a larger organization with added resources, and continue to share in the additional value created.

"There is a tremendous opportunity for Aegis to grow organically and for Fire Safety Systems continued growth through strategic acquisitions. With Fire Safety Systems resources and experience, we have the opportunity to further invest in our business, enhance our operational execution, and outpace the competition."
Andone will continue as President of Aegis overseeing its operations. His decades of experience and that of his team will be invaluable as Fire Safety Systems expands its presence in the Southeast.
