Smoke and natural ventilation specialist Adexsi has acquired fire safety product supplier Ateliers Boullet.
Ateliers Boullet will become an independent part of the global Adexsi group, which produces more than 80,000 smoke ventilation and natural daylighting units every year in its three factories.
The Adexsi group includes the Souchier, Hexadome, SIA and Langethermo brands providing roof and façade ventilation systems and associated controls.
It has a strong presence in the UK through its Adexsi UK subsidiary based in Cardiff.
Growing export markets, particularly in the Middle East, are also being managed by the UK operation.
The group believes there are major export opportunities for Ateliers Boullet, said Adexsi UK director Kerry Jones: “This acquisition adds another string to our bow. [We are] rapidly expanding our product offering in low energy and passive building solutions, which is a logical extension from our smoke ventilation products.”
