The Starn Group – which owns Dundee-headquartered businesses Safehouse Habitats and Sabre Safety Services – has acquired a firm in Canada that makes safety shelters for an undisclosed sum.
Starn has completed the acquisition of Dynamic Air Shelters which produces shelters capable of operating in extreme temperatures and can even withstand the impact of explosions and category three hurricanes.
Dynamic is already an established provider of blast and environmental protection shelter in the USA and Canada and is making steady inroads internationally.
Starn’s executive chairman Phil Maxted said: “The expertise and experience offered by Dynamic’s highly skilled workforce will bolster our commitment to providing local service from a global footprint.
“Previously, as agents for Dynamic for two years, we have been working to bring its innovative product to our own customer base in Europe, the Middle East and Australia and therefore already have great relationships with the entire team.
“We are excited for the future now we have joined forces.”
