About Fire Fighters Equipment Co.
Fire Fighters (FFEC) is the premier fire protection, mechanical, and restaurant equipment contractor in Florida. We have been recognized as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies headquartered in North Florida by the Business Journal for four out of the last five years. Based upon our growth thus far this year we should be recognized again for 2006.
FFEC has experienced compounded annual sales growth of over 41% per year for the last nine years. In addition to our growth rate we have improved gross and net margin. We operate from a 40,000 sq. ft. facility which won the 2005-2006 Corporate Facility Of The Year.
FFEC is expanded into the Food Service Equipment and Supply industry because it was a perfect fit for our company. Our largest customers are restaurants and industrial, commercial and institutional facilities that provide food service to their employees and others in their facilities. This division of our company utilizes our experience and corporate culture to bring a new level of professionalism to the Food Service industry.
We will be the leader in this industry as we have become in each of the six other divisions. Our primary growth has been organic. However, we have performed some acquisitions and integration into our culture. We firmly believe that delivering the best products through an educated and friendly staff at fair prices is an unbeatable formula.
Our plans for the Food Service industry are to complete the remodel of our facility and integrate the expanded showroom to include themed restaurant setups and an operational test kitchen. We have been awarded the premier lines in the industry and will provide point of sale materials, to be able to educate the customer to make an informed decision concerning his equipment purchases.
We will work with the client from concept to design and finally installation. For all the reasons above we believe that now is the time to be aligned with the premier contractors. Your company has historically been considered the premier contractors and if partnered with FFEC we would continue in our normal mode of operation which includes sponsored luncheons for architects to provide them the latest information on products. We would continue to work to specify our manufacturers and place them into our design build clients’ facilities.
By offering the full array of services and trades it makes the selection of Fire Fighters an easy one for the client.
With Personal Regards,
