OUR BRIEF HISTORY
The “A Fire Pro” Story
Doug began his fire sprinkler career in 1965 at Grinnell Corporation, and in 1973 he took the bold step of founding his own company—American Fire Protection—with a commitment to providing the highest possible Quality and Service in the fire protection industry. Forty-five years later, Doug’s team has exceeded his goals and built a reputation as the ‘go-to’ experts for fire sprinkler solutions, leading Doug to coin his team – the “A Fire Pros.”
Over the span of 53 years with Doug leading his team of “A Fire Pros,” they have worked in all phases of the fire sprinkler industry – design, sales, fabrication, installation, consulting, and management. He prides himself in saying, “our team has worked on projects where we crafted a unique, fire protection design solution for anything from port-a-johns to nuclear bombs.”
Doug holds the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology’s (NICET) Level IV rating in water-based system layout, the highest possible designation within the NICET certification system.
