Share Article

KBS Passive Fire Pty. Ltd. has now completed its two year feasibility and test study in North and South America, and has now established offices and distributors in the USA, Canada and Mexico.

KBS Passive Fire recently announced its expansion into the fire protection markets in North and South America, following the conclusion of a two year study determining the feasibility of entering these markets. Since the completion of the study, KBS Passive Fire has expanded its range to include the new markets and has seen a dramatic increase in sales and the company's potential for growth.

The feasibility study made it clear that there is an abundant need for KBS fire protection coating in the North and South American markets, and the company has already seen the benefits of expanding their area of service. After weighing the risks and benefits at length Sean Ritchie, Managing Director of KBS, states, "Bringing the KBS Passive Fire System to North and South America is extremely beneficial to Firestop contractors, industrial and mining facilities and commercial construction due to the extremely competitive pricing model. Demand for the KBS System has grown dramatically."

KBS Passive Fire, which has experienced great success in the Canada and American fireproofing spray and fire safety market, will now provide these much-needed services to a greater portion of the world. The expansion also indicates the continued success of KBS Passive Fire Pty. Ltd., one of the largest distributors of the KBS Passive Fire Protection System in the world.

"We are very happy with the progress of the KBS System in North and South America," said Mr. Ritchie. "Cease Fire LLC, our strategic partner in the USA, has greatly helped us penetrate the market. Our combined business model has taken away the call centres and reinstated good old fashioned technical sales representatives who can supply information on the spot and who can get the job done for our clients, something that today's market is seriously lacking."

The KBS System has now been installed in Brazil, Mexico, Canada and the USA with an application just completed for the Department of Energy in California.
