Company Background



International Fire Equipment Corporationís roots date back to 1961 when it was founded by Irvin Jarzembowski as Irv's Fire Extinguisher Company.  As a former chief design engineer for Randolph Laboratories Inc. of Northbrook, Illinois, he brought into his business almost 20 years of professional fire protection expertise. Forty-five years ago, Irv started with a single truck and a vision - to provide quality products and services to commerce and industry. Since that time, the vision has continued to grow and flourish under the expert guidance of his son, Jim as International Fire Equipment Corporation. As the fire protection industry has advanced into the 21st century, so has International Fire Equipment. With new and expanded product and service lines, we are prepared to take your fire protection to the next level.

As an active member of the fire protection community, International Fire Equipment Corporation (I.F.E.C.) is furthering fire protection technology through active membership in the following organizations:

*  National Fire Protection Association

*  National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors

*  Northern Illinois Fire Inspectors Association

*  Illinois Fire Inspectors Association

*  Society of Fire Protection Engineers

*  United Fire Equipment Service Association

*  Underwriters Laboratories Standards Advisory Council

In 1996, International Fire Equipment Corporation, became the first Fire Protection Equipment Distributor in North America to attain ISO 9001 certification. ISO 9001 is an international quality standard, which is recognized as a benchmark for acceptance of a product or service based solely on quality. As an ISO 9001structured company, we are more than able to provide that piece of mind!!!
