By Generational Equity


Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately-held, middle-market businesses, is pleased to announce the acquisition of its client, K&M Fire Protection Services, Inc. (K&M), headquartered in Plantsville, Connecticut, by Davis-Ulmer Sprinkler Company, Inc. (Davis-Ulmer), an APi Group, Inc. (APi) subsidiary. The effective closing date of the transaction was October 31, 2015.

K&M, founded in 2009 by Michael Uszakiewicz, is a full-service fire suppression system design, fabrication, installation, service, maintenance, and inspection contractor.

The Company’s expertise and variety of fire suppression systems allow it to serve nearly any client’s needs. K&M successfully operates throughout Connecticut, New York State and New York City, and Massachusetts.

Managing Director Michael Goss led the Generational Equity deal team that advised K&M on the transaction. 

According to Michael Goss, “From the beginning, there was a strong understanding that K&M would make a wonderful addition to the Davis-Ulmer and APi family.”

“Through hard work, determination, and a strong cultural fit, both buyer and seller saw the intrinsic value and vision of what they could do as a unified operation, which lead to a very solid transaction for both sides.”

Davis-Ulmer offers clients the security of experience, quality performance and turnkey solutions for fire sprinklers, suppression, alarm and detection.

Headquartered in greater Buffalo, N.Y., its clients enjoy the high value of a company committed to its work and its workers. Davis-Ulmer employs 300 people and sees very low employee turnover – having a number of employees with more than 20 years experience.
