BALTIMORE, MD (June 11, 2019) – Fidelity Building Services Group (Fidelity BSG), a leader in HVAC/Mechanical Services, Building Automation & Controls, Emergency Power Generation and related services within the Mid-Atlantic, announces its expansion into the Southeast and Southwest regions through its acquisition of four Star Service, Inc. locations in Houston, TX; Jackson, MS; New Orleans, LA and Mobile, AL. Star Service, Inc. is a provider of high-quality HVAC services and solutions to commercial and industrial clients along the Gulf Coast.

The acquisition comes at the same time the organization has rebranded to Fidelity Building Services Group. Celebrating 75 years in business, this rebranding campaign builds on Fidelity's leadership in integrated building services, while expanding both its geographical footprint and portfolio of companies.

The comprehensive rebrand also reflects Fidelity's efforts to fully align into one organization that offers best-in-class services ranging from HVAC/Mechanical Services, Engineered Retrofits/Targeted Design-Build, IoT / Building Automation & Controls to Emergency Power Generation - all backed by a world-class culture of customer service.

“This is a new era for Fidelity, and our rebranding campaign illustrates our commitment to lead the industry, place a strong focus on high-quality customer service and allow for expansion outside of the Mid-Atlantic region,” says Dave Lanphar, CEO, Fidelity Building Services Group. “We are delighted to have Star Service, Inc. and their ownership team join the Fidelity Family of Companies, as they are an organization that shares the same culture and values that drive Fidelity.”

For Star Service, Inc., the acquisition presents an opportunity to further their customer service efforts with additional resources and industry expertise. It also brings their ownership group directly into the Fidelity organization, as Star Service, Inc. owners are now minority partners in Fidelity.

In addition to Star Service, Inc. Fidelity Building Services Group is also the parent company to Fidelity Power Systems, Fidelity Mechanical Services, HVAC Concepts, Benchmark Automation & Controls, Central Tech Services and Martin J. Braun, all of which are based in the Mid-Atlantic region.
