Ranger Fire and Security announces acquisition of Syncro

March 13, 2024



Ranger Fire and Security has announced the acquisition of Syncro Group Limited, a national fire and security provider.

Based in the Northwest, Syncro is an industry leader in the fire protection and security sector, focusing on fire detection, extinguishers and security alarm services, boasting experience equating to more than 100 years in the fire and security industry. 

Shared values key for acquisition

“Having established Syncro in 2011 and grown the business organically since inception, partnering with Ranger was a well thought out and deliberate decision based on our shared values and people first philosophy that will allow us to continue to invest in our operations and customer service,” said Gerry Bates, Managing Director at Syncro Group.

“We are pleased to be joining the Ranger Group, working together to not only bring a better level of service to more people, but capitalising on new growth opportunities and areas for collaboration.” 

Syncro was founded by Bates and Paul Fallon, both seasoned fire and security professionals, who have organically grown the business through word-of-mouth and customer referrals.

The founders have been instrumental in the growth of Syncro since its inception and demonstrated by their service within the student accommodation and leisure industry across the UK.

Fundamental to growth

Both founders will join the senior leadership team at Ranger Fire and Security as Managing Directors and will be fundamental to the Group’s growth over the coming years, the companies report.

The acquisition of Syncro will enhance Ranger’s service offering with its experience in fire detection and security alarm services.

Ranger will continue to execute the build of a collaborative and effective industry platform while supporting fire and security businesses that join the Group.  

“Our strategy aligns perfectly with Mark and the Ranger Group in wanting to continue our growth and partnering with other Ranger companies and cementing our national presence within fire detection, extinguishers and security services,” said Fallon, Managing Director, Syncro Group.

Ranger was launched with the goal of building out an industry-leading one-stop solution life safety business, delivered through regional and national operations that invests in technology to provide customer experience.

Proven track record

“We are excited to welcome Syncro to the growing Ranger team,” added Mark Bridge, CEO of Ranger Fire and Security.

“Syncro is a very well-respected national business with a focused and proven track record of providing customers with the highest service quality for their compliance needs.

“Syncro will form a key part of Ranger’s service proposition and will enhance the Group’s extinguishers, detection and security services.   

“This is a significant milestone for Ranger in our journey to bring the best proven companies together to provide customers with exceptional fire and security compliance and safety.

“Syncro has a strong and loyal customer base which it has fostered through excellent customer service quality and on-time delivery of services since inception.

“Its leaders have built hugely strong partnerships in the sector, which creates a significant opportunity for us to work together.”
