Select Essential is proud to confirm its acquisition of Fire Security Services.

28 September 2021


A Word From Fire Security Services Founder and Director, David Nathan...

After a lifetime in the industry, I am retiring on the 30th of September. As such, I’m excited to announce that from the 1st of October, FIRE SECURITY SERVICES has been acquired by SELECT ESSENTIAL P/L, a long established and leading Victorian provider of Essential Services & Building Compliance.

What does this mean for you?

On a day-to-day basis, it’s business as usual, only now we have more resources and capabilities to continue driving value and a greater range of services with a single contact point for service and compliance available.
The same technicians who already understand your site-specific requirements, driving the same vehicles and using the same data gathering systems will still be calling every week or month as they do now to ensure no interruption to your compliance requirements.
Above all, as both organizations have been operating on the same software platform for several years, a seamless transition of data between the two will be created and ensure all historical service records built up over the last 24-years will still be available to technicians so that future inspections and servicing are most efficient.

What does this mean for us?

All our staff are now a part of the Select Essential family and will continue to support our Fire Security Services clients under the Select Essential banner.
We have chosen to join the Select Essential group to accomplish greater efficiencies in the delivery of Fire Protection and Essential Services – and to provide additional opportunities for our people.

Our story continues…

Joining forces with a company as committed as Fire Security Services, is what takes us into the next chapter in our storybook.
Select Essential have a very similar customer centric focus, values, culture, and ambitions as Fire Security Services and for this reason the two businesses are very compatible.

Thank you!

We would like to extend a special thanks to all our customers who have supported us over the last 24-years and allowed us to build a business which is well respected in the Fire Protection and Essential Services sector.
I want to take this opportunity to personally thank each and every one of you for putting your trust in us over the last 24 years and bringing us to where we are today. Our staff are driven to make Fire Protection and Essential Services better and easier for you.

This commitment is continuing during this exciting time!
