Media, PA (PRWEB) February 28, 2008
Kinetix, an award-winning fire and safety company that helps protect such high profile government buildings as Independence Hall, the U.S. Holocaust Museum and the Blair House in Washington, D. C., announced today that it was acquired by John B. Henry & Associates Inc.
"Joining John B. Henry gives us a strong entrée into the federal sector based on their certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business status," says Nicholas J. Plante, Kinetix president. "We are now aligned with a company filled with deep executive talent that we can draw upon as we continue to grow."
Media, Pa.-based John B. Henry is a full-service project management and consulting firm that provides "green" building engineering and design, specializing in state and federal work.
"We've had tremendous growth and we see this union as a perfect way to display our expertise to an even wider audience," Plante said. "Both companies share a vision of dedicating their efforts to the green concept for buildings, and we hope to promote that idea with every project, whether in the public or private sector."
Kinetix received the GSA Contractor of the Year award (2006) and the Philadelphia 100 award, establishing it as one of the fastest-growing companies in the Greater Philadelphia area.
According to Plante, the management team at Kinetix will remain unchanged.
Kinetix operates throughout the mid-Atlantic region, from New York state through Virginia.
Kinetix will continue to maintain its office in Media, Pa., in addition to offices in Baltimore, Md., and Washington, D.C.
"The acquisition of Kinetix brings us a company that many consider to be the premier fire safety service contractor in the mid-Atlantic," said John B. Henry's Executive Vice President, Blaine Fox. "This alignment will blend two strong management teams with different areas of specialty into an entity with more expertise and solutions than before."
