Sprinkler Division leads Integrated into 2014

Happy New Year and welcome to 2014!

It may not necessarily be a “warm-welcome” from Mother Nature – but, despite the cold temperatures, we are on our way to a great year ahead and certainly extend our best wishes to you!

Integrated Fire Protection is excited for another year to serve our clients while striving to provide  a superior customer service experience.

As we jump into 2014, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every client who allowed us to serve you in 2013 – we are extremely grateful as our forward progress simply would not be possible without you.

Last year was a busy year for Integrated Fire Protection as we went through many internal changes, including hiring of new key employees, training, introducing new product lines and much more.  All of our efforts were directly centered around providing the highest degree of excellence and professionalism to you – our valued clients.

Our team is united, and committed as we advance into this New Year with confidence that 2014 will be a year of even stronger partnerships and a service experience that is unparalleled.
