Detector Inspector, Australia’s Number 1 residential safety & compliance company is pleased to announce the acquisition of the business of Sydney Smoke Alarms & Compliance, further strengthening its fast-growing NSW operations.

Sydney Smoke Alarms, founded six years ago by two firemen, Andrew Webb and Frank Sako, built strong and trusted business relationships with more than 50 real estate agencies through responsiveness, great service and flexibility.

Andrew Webb, co-founder of Sydney Smoke Alarms said: “We are delighted to join the team at Detector Inspector, who we’ve watched with interest over the past few years. We had a number of options, but ultimately, we wanted to ensure that our clients were taken care of by a company that shared our values of excellence in customer service and a strong safety & compliance culture and that was run by people who we liked and trusted. Detector Inspector had that in spades.”

Jordan Kagan Gescheit, co-CEO and co-founder of Detector Inspector said: “Detector Inspector’s business is continuing to grow strongly, scaling fast in all markets. The opportunity to acquire the Sydney Smoke Alarms’ business together with the expertise, care and dedication of Andrew and Frank was an easy decision for us to make. Building off our scalable technology platform and growing team, our NSW business is going from strength to strength and we remain on the look out for further opportunities to accelerate growth in NSW and elsewhere in the near future.”

Max Gilmour, NSW State Manager for Detector Inspector said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Andrew and Frank and their agency customers to Detector Inspector NSW. I am looking forward to taking learnings from their rich experience over the past six years and showing their loyal agency clients how Detector Inspector can build on their legacy with our superior technology designed specifically to reduce the time and friction of safety & compliance servicing of rental properties for agencies and their landlords.”
