To serve a growing customer demand Marioff Oy has expanded its North America operations by adding technical support and customer service capability in Ashland, Massachusetts. Marioff’s flagship brand HI-FOG® is the world’s premiere water mist fire protection system, with applications ranging from protecting cultural heritage buildings and aircraft hangers, to machinery spaces and hotels. Marioff is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
High pressure water mist established its reputation in cruise ships. Today, increased demand is being seen across a number of land- based applications such as power generation and transportation infrastructure. The enhancements to the North America operations, including an expanded focus on codes and regulations and management of large-scale projects, allow Marioff to better serve customers in these growing segments.
“HI-FOG® uses up to 90% less water than traditional sprinkler systems for the same application, with equivalent or better performance,” said Lance Harry, Marioff Commercial Director. “There are over 5,000 full scale fire tests that have proven the effectiveness of the system in various applications, and it carries a number of land-based approvals, including Factory Mutual and the City of New York.”
“Our expanded North America office allows us to focus on accelerating the acceptance of HI-FOG® in North America and to meet this new demand with enhanced customer service,” said Harry.
Marioff is part of UTC Fire & Security, a company that provides fire safety and security solutions to more than 1 million customers worldwide.
