Advanced Fire Suppression Technologies was founded on 01 March 2000 by Barries Barnard, with the vision of employing people who wanted to work rather than being necessity driven in line with the Company’s nature of being entrepreneurial, and has been inspired by the prospects of a new democratic South Africa and the emerging opportunities from the BEE policy. The company began dealing solely in the fire protection line of business and secured the official sole distributorship of JCI safety products in Southern Africa.
JCI is the largest fire protection group in the world solving fire protection needs since 1939 which includes inter alia; ANSUL®, Grinnel, Total Walther, Macron and Wormald. With this alliance we have access to the most advanced fire fighting products in the world.
