Victaulic has purchased the 105 year old manufacturing company, Globe Fire Sprinkler, for an undisclosed sum.
These two century old companies combined, will have the resources and capabilities to bring exciting new solutions to the fire protection industry around the world.
Steven Worthington, who will continue to serve the combined organization as president, Globe Fire Protection, said Victaulic brings additional financial resources to Globe, enabling added focus on innovation to support customers and the industry.
Victaulic CEO, John F. Malloy, said the addition of Globe’s fire protection sprinkler volume and engineering capabilities will provide the scale and skills necessary to be a true leader in all aspects of the fire protection industry.
Known as a mechanical pipe joining solutions company, Victaulic currently has a portfolio of more than
2,000 patented solutions for the building and industrial construction industries.
With more than 4,000 employees and 55 international facilities, Victaulic has customers in more than 120 countries.
Globe Fire Sprinkler has been manufacturing sprinklers and valves for 105 years.
The company developed the earliest lever-fulcrum dry pipe valve, and eventually became the first US company to utilize 5mm and 3mm Glass Bulbs in its commercial and residential sprinklers.
