Founded in 1977 by industry veteran Richard H. Childress, Guardian Fire Equipment, Inc. quickly established itself as a reliable source for fire equipment. The availability of quality products coupled with a knowledgable sales staff provided the foundation for continued company growth.
In 1984, production expanded through the acquisition of the Seco Manufacturing product line. Included in the purchase were manufacturing tools, machines, dies, foundry patterns, match plates, product designs and engineering data. This acquisition brought new levels of versatility and the ability to respond to special requirements.
Today, Guardian Fire Equipment, Inc. is recognized as a leader in the fire protection industry and continues as a family-owned and operated business with commitment to value, quality and service.
