Swegon acquires leading manufacturer of intelligent smoke & fire
control systems
Swegon Group AB acquires Safegard Systems Ltd in the Republic of Ireland.
Safegard is the leading provider of intelligent smoke/fire damper control and monitoring systems in the United
Kingdom and Ireland with a growing presence and future growth potential in international markets.
Safegard's systems are used to contain/extract smoke within the ducted ventilation systems of commercial buildings
such as hospitals, airports and multi-story office blocks.
With headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, the company employs 20 staff with a turnover in 2016 of 8 MEUR. The company
develops and assembles its products in Dublin and operates a direct sales model in the Irish market and utilizes
distributors in other markets.
“Safegard is the most advanced and comprehensive fire & smoke control system supplier in Europe and will provide
us with a highly attractive new product segment and several benefits both short term and long term, says Hannu
Saastamoinen, CEO of Swegon. As a long-lasting co-operation partner to our newly acquired Swegon Air Management
(former Ruskin), the acquisition will secure our leading position as a fire and smoke system supplier in the United
Kingdom and Ireland and create a good platform and competence base for a more long-term development of
Swegon’ s European fire & smoke business plan”
“Safegard has for more than 20 years focused on the development of smoke and fire control systems. This long-term
focus has enabled us to develop the market’s most reliable and advanced systems, suitable for any type of setting.
With Swegon’s systems approach and their strength in the commercial ventilation landscape, we believe we have
found the best home to continue our growth journey”, says Shaun Magill, Managing Director of Safegard.
