67-year-old HVAC company is the latest to join the national technical building solutions provider’s portfolio of companies
SPARKS, MD (November 9, 2021) – Fidelity Building Services Group (Fidelity BSG), a national leader in HVAC/Mechanical Services, Building Automation & Controls, and Emergency Power Generators, announces today the acquisition of Kentucky-based Lyons Company and Lyons Service (Lyons) to its growing portfolio of integrated technical building services and solutions.
A nearly 70-year old company with a rich history steeped in customer service, innovation, and a commitment to its Team Members, Lyons serves the Kentucky market by offering comprehensive HVAC/Mechanical solutions for industrial, institutional, and commercial needs. Its capabilities include Engineering, Complex Mechanical Installations, HVAC Service, and Building Automation, led by an extraordinary team who is committed to exceptional quality and customer service.
Lyons first opened its doors in 1954 as a plumbing and heating contractor with three Team Members and two trucks. Today it has grown to more than 100 people, serving Kentucky and states throughout the Southeast. Lyons has provided Mechanical/HVAC services for some of America’s most familiar brands, including the J.M. Smucker Company, General Mills, Kingsford Charcoal, and numerous distilleries. The organization also services medical and educational institutions such as the Medical Center at Bowling Green and Western Kentucky University.
“Lyons Company has a very rich history of delivering exceptional customer service and outstanding workmanship. We recognize that this has just as much to do with their level of service as it does their values of honesty, integrity, and valuing those who work for them,” says Dave Lanphar, CEO of Fidelity BSG. “We are proud to welcome the Lyons family into our own and look forward to a great partnership.”
The acquisition of Lyons is the latest move in Fidelity BSG’s strategic multi-regional growth plan, and further solidifies its presence in the South.
“When Lyons first opened, we always had our sights set on one day being the leading provider of HVAC/Mechanical services in the region. We achieved this goal by continuing to evolve with industry technology, valuing our customers and Team Members, and by practicing honesty, integrity, and transparency,” says Denise Lyons Dickinson, President of Lyons. “Joining forces with Fidelity BSG allows us to continue pushing our vision of growth and excellence forward. We look forward to what this partnership will bring to our leadership and all of our team.”
The transaction was finalized on November 3, 2021. FMI Consulting, a middle market investment bank specializing in M&A advisory, served as financial advisor to Fidelity BSG in connection with the transaction.
