02 May Amteck Expands its Fire Suppression Services While Strengthening its Presence in the Southeast
The Addition of Southeastern Automatic Sprinkler Co. Inc.
Amteck, LLC, announces the addition of Southeastern Automatic Sprinkler Co., Inc. (SAS) a fire suppression business based in Madison, Mississippi with 60 years of experience servicing warehouse, commercial and manufacturing facilities with their fire protection and sprinkler needs.
“Southeastern is a natural addition to Amteck; our technologies division was already aiding our customers with their fire alarm systems, so it made sense to extend to sprinklers.” Chief Executive Officer Daren Turner said, “In addition, by adding Southeastern, we gain a new office creating a stronger presence within the region and an outstanding team with a long history of providing quality work.”
SAS was founded in 1958 as a small fire protection sprinkler business installing quality fire sprinkler systems in warehouses, shopping centers, office buildings, hospitals and nursing homes, and various manufacturing facilities in Mississippi. Over the years, the company expanded their services and reach to various businesses’ facilities throughout the Southeast. The company further broadened their scope to a turnkey fire suppression solution that encompasses fire sprinkler systems, backflow preventers, fire pumps, fire extinguishers and suppression, special hazards, testing maintenance and inspections.
“We are extremely honored to join the Amteck family as they have always had an excellent reputation within the industry,” former Owner, now General Manager, Harlon Sistrunk said. “By joining Amteck, we will be bringing our expertise to their customers and Amteck’s fire alarm capabilities to ours. It makes for an exciting time.”
Sistrunk has over 51 years working in the fire protection sprinkler business and is considered a leader in the industry. He served many years on the board of the Mississippi Fire Sprinkler Association including several terms as President. Sistrunk joined SAS as a designer in 1969 and quickly moved through the ranks becoming a partner in 1977 and in 2012, the sole owner.
Amteck is no stranger to finding talent in different trades and markets. In May, Amteck added Proformance Group Incorporated (PGI) a multi-industry multi-process electrical automation expertise business with over 40 years of experience working in the electrical instrumentation design and construction field. Shortly following the acquisition of PGI, Amteck gained Consolidated Electrical Contractors & Engineers Inc., (CECE) a South Carolina design/build and electrical construction company with 30 years of experience. With CECE on board, Amteck gained a fully functioning professional branch strengthening their position in the southeast.
In 1977 Amteck was founded in Central, Kentucky with the belief that growth only comes by listening and responding to both clients and employees. Four Decades later, Amteck has grown from a small electrical contracting firm to a national leader in the design-build support electrical contracting industry. Amteck specializes in facility growth expansion initiatives of companies that operate in the manufacturing, industrial, process, food, and beverage, hospitality, healthcare, distribution facilities, and commercial and institutional sectors. The number one goal is the Safety of our Employees and maintaining our culture and core values: THE AMTECK WAY – SAFETY, QUALITY, & CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. (www.amteck.com)
