CWS Fire Safety acquires Wellmann Sicherheitstechnik

Duisburg, September 26. CWS Fire Safety acquires Wellmann Sicherheitstechnik GmbH, a leading provider of safety technology with 130 employees at three locations in North Rhine-Westphalia, effective October 2023. The Haniel portfolio company thus strengthens its market position as a full-service provider of products and services for preventive fire safety and security technology.

"Through the acquisition of the Hagen-based IGS, we already successfully entered the security technology market in 2021. Thanks to Wellmann we can now expand our experience and knowledge in important areas," says Dr. Ulrich Schild, Managing Director of CWS Fire Safety GmbH. 

With the largest acquisition so far in the still young history of the company, CWS Fire Safety continues the growth course of the past five years and expands its portfolio to include fire alarm systems, voice alarms, intrusion detection systems, video surveillance systems and other security technology systems. The combination of fire safety and security technology solutions addresses customers who want to protect both people and property in buildings.
