Inflexion is pleased to announce it has made a majority investment in Detectortesters, the leading global manufacturer of fire detector testing equipment. The investment is being made by Inflexion Buyout Fund V.
Founded in 1965, Detectortesters designs and produces solutions that enable testing of smoke, heat and carbon monoxide fire detectors. With a worldwide customer base, consisting mainly of field service engineers, the business exports its products to over 130 countries, deriving over 80% of its revenues outside the UK. The company conducts all new product development in-house, working with all of the major fire detector OEMs, fostering efficiency as well as proprietary innovation.
Inflexion will support the management team at Detectortesters to continue product innovation including a focus on sustainability, drive revenue growth through pricing strategies and sales channel optimisation, whilst accelerating international growth. As part of the investment Detectortesters will simultaneously acquire Systems Distributors, Inc., a US distributor of Detectortesters products which will be a platform for further growth in that region.
