The Company

protecfire® was founded in Luebeck Germany in December 2001 by Eng. Roberto Solis who is a Certified Professional Engineer (M.Sc. in ME) specializing in the field of Industrial Automatic Fire Extinguishing and Suppression Systems since 1983.

  As a result of protecfire initial few years of rapid growth and innovation, Fagus- Grecon GmbH, a German company founded in 1911 which has a division specializing in Spark Detection technology and fire prevention, joined forces with Mr. Roberto Solis and further expanded the company.

  protecfire® humble beginning was at the most hazardous sector; the underground coal mining in Germany.

At that time no company was able to provide a suitable and high quality purely mechanical, automatic fire suppression systems using a fine-spray liquid agent. protecfire® stood up to the demanding challenges and succeeded.

  The company expanded it’s product range to now serve all mining machinery, bus, wind turbine, commercial kitchen with liquid extinguishing agents and fine spray technology, and also to the defense industries.

Road Map

protecfire®  is a company in full expansion!

The last years were of a galloping internationalization. We are present in all continents, with specialized and highly motivated distributors.

Great sales success essentially has four factors:

  • A company that is easy to contact and has highly motivated teams.
  • A unique product and technology far from all competition.
  • Legal obligation to use fire safety systems on companies.
  • Mentality that is increasingly changing, where we see companies increasingly investing in safety.
  • All these factors lead protecfire to have the need to expand teams, factories, and distribution networks.

Internationalization is the engine for the future.
