Scott Safety (UK), a Tyco business, announced today that it has acquired privately-held ISG/Infrasys, a world leader in the design of thermal imaging cameras. The combination of ISG and Scott makes Tyco one of the largest global suppliers of hand-held thermal imaging cameras, and further enhances Scott Safety’s world-class portfolio of high-quality life safety products for first responders, military personnel, and industrial workers around the world.

Founded in 1992, ISG is currently an independent company based in suburban Atlanta, GA with additional facilities in California and the UK. ISG is the world leader in design and development of innovative thermal imaging technology for firefighters. ISG imagers incorporate proprietary ISG engine technology to offer the best image quality and the best high-temperature endurance for use in the harshest and most challenging firefighting environments.

“ISG provides an excellent strategic fit within our life safety business, where Scott Safety has a long track record of delivering premium safety products to First Responders, Military Personnel, and Industrial workers,” said Andrew Chrostowski, President, Scott Safety. “This acquisition brings together two world-class companies with a shared focus on innovation, product quality, and customer support.”

“ISG is excited to be joining forces with another respected company and brand in Scott Safety,” said David Little, CEO of ISG Infrasys. “We look forward to working hand-in-hand to bring innovative new technologies to enhance firefighter safety.”

Scott Safety has a broad, global offering of premium safety products, with a range that includes SCBA, air purifying respirators, gas detection systems, compressors, and accountability products. Scott has also been providing thermal imaging cameras to its customers for over 15 years. With the addition of ISG, Scott Safety will now offer the broadest range of thermal imaging cameras in the market, including two imagers certified to the new NFPA 1801 standard for thermal imaging cameras.

“ISG has earned a reputation for delivering the highest image quality and technology in their imagers, which are used in a variety of firefighting, HAZMAT, and other emergency applications. They are a respected industry leader with a talented team of professionals and a track record of developing innovative products and services to enhance firefighting,” said Jeff Emery, Director of Marketing, Scott Safety. “This acquisition will enable us to accelerate new product development, expand our geographic presence, deepen our technical expertise and broaden our product offerings and service capabilities.”
The transaction closed on Thursday, November 20 and is subject to customary closing conditions.
