Align Capital Partners is merging its platform investment, ISA Fire and Security, with Cleveland-based ABCO Fire Protection.

ABCO — which goes to market under the ABCO, Trico, and Superior Fire brands – is a regional provider of fire safety and security system inspection, maintenance, and repair services for commercial customers.

Today, ABCO has nine offices throughout Ohio and Kentucky supported by over 125 service technicians. It is majority owned and operated by Bob Titmas Jr., son of the company’s founder.

“We’re excited to combine forces with the ABCO team on the heels of our initial investment in ISA,” Align Managing Partner Steve Dyke said in a statement. “ABCO will immediately provide ISA with a broader service offering and greater customer diversity. But, beyond the benefits of scale, ABCO brings with it key people — both a sizable pool of highly skilled technicians and a talented management team.”

Working with Dyke on the transaction were:

  • Operating Partner John Dupuy
  • Vice President Jack Parks
  • Associate Jonathan Vadiee.

ACP and ISA will continue to seek regional fire and life safety service providers across the U.S. to continue to build the platform.
