Atlanta-based electronic security and fire alarm company Carter Brothers L.L.C. (No. 74 on the BE INDUSTRIAL/SERVICE 100 list with $55.6 million in sales) purchased Edwards Service, a fire alarm, maintenance, installation, and inspection company in March for an undisclosed amount. The deal will increase Carter Brothers’ revenues by more than $36 million and boost its workforce by about 160 employees in nearly a dozen new office locations.
“Acquisition has been one of our identified strategies for growing our company within the fire and security market. We also believe that since we are aligned in commercial security, fire alarm, and project management, we can unlock tremendous growth within Edwards Service,” says Carter Brothers President and CEO John Carter.
