The move was made to support and expand the company’s capability as a global firefighting foam systems integrator.
According to Eddie Goldberg, President and CEO of Perimeter Solutions, the acquisition of Magnum Fire and Safety is in line with the company’s drive to provide the market with comprehensive firefighting technology and equipment portfolios, and to develop solutions that are tailored for customer fire protection needs. “We want to offer a broader range of comprehensive solutions for international fire safety programs – particularly as we roll out new fluorine-free firefighting foam technology,” he said. “We will continue to invest in manufacturing and technology to support the growth of our business in markets around the world,” he added.
