Adamport, a specialist fire protection business based in the South West and operating across the UK and Ireland, has been acquired by a large national firm, in a deal advised on by the GS Verde Group.

For over 30 years, the business has covered all aspects of passive fire protection and built an impressive reputation amongst clients, which include universities, care homes, hotels, hospitals, major trusts and councils. The business has been acquired by a national firm and will form part of its decentralised operating model, delivering high-quality compliance services.
