Sciens Building Solutions Acquires Florida-Based LV Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO — Sciens Building Solutions announces it has acquired Longwood, Fla.-based fire and security firm LV Solutions.

This is the latest acquisition since Sciens was established in 2016 to pursue a buy-and-build investment strategy in the fire detection and integrated solutions sector. Sciens acquired Rochester, N.Y.-based fire and security firm West Fire Systems on March 16.

The addition of LVS helps expand the company’s presence in Central Florida and provides LVS, its employees, and its customers with even deeper resources and expertise, according to the company.

“Sciens’ and its affiliated companies’ solid technical expertise and comprehensive building solutions, combined with LVS’s capabilities, will allow us to develop broader and even better offerings for the important Orlando and greater Central Florida market,” says Trevor Blanc, president of LV Solutions, who will remain in his current role with the company. “We are excited to expand together under the Sciens platform and look forward to continuing to provide excellent customer service to our valuable clients.”

LV Solutions was founded in 2005 where it has been supporting Central Florida area clients ever since. The addition of LVS to Sciens is said to allow the company to further expand its existing presence in this region by working together with existing Sciens locations in Orlando and St. Petersburg, Fla.

“There’s no question the addition of LVS contributes to the fun, growth-focused journey of Sciens. LVS has an excellent reputation throughout the Central Florida region as a customer-first fire and security leader,” says Terry Heath, Sciens’ CEO. “Our expertise and capabilities in fire detection, sprinkler, suppression, CCTV, access control and audio visual make us a natural choice for customers looking for a service provider that can support them across the entire spectrum.”
