THE Starn Group, which owns Safehouse, Safe-Ex and Esprat, has successfully completed the acquisition of Canada-based Dynamic Air Shelters on 1 November 2019. T

his acquisition extends the global reach and offering of Starn by adding bespoke, blast-resistant air-supported shelters to its already wide range of engineered products and services designed to protect our planet and people from the impact of hazardous activities.

Dynamic is already an established provider of blast and environmental protection shelters in the USA and Canada and is making steady inroads internationally.  In addition, it is extending the range of applications of its air shelter technology into a variety of other sectors.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dynamic Air Shelters in to the Starn Group of companies,” Starn’s executive chairman, Phil Maxted, said.

“The expertise and experience offered by Dynamic’s highly skilled workforce will bolster our commitment to providing local service from a global footprint.

“Previously, as agents for Dynamic for two years, we have been working to bring its innovative product to our own customer base in Europe, the Middle East and Australia and therefore already have great relationships with the entire team. We are very excited for what the future will bring now that we have joined forces.”

Mr Maxted said the addition of Dynamic Air Shelters to the group will allow Starn to further penetrate the Australian and Asian markets with its other products and services. Although the price remains undisclosed, the deal is attractive for the strategic goals that will be achieved.
