Fletchers started a nationwide Fire Protection group in the 1980s. Collecting together existing companies and starting branches of their own, however Fletcher Fire Protection (FFP) was bought by management in 1991 who split the company into regional operators and changed the trading name to suit the initials the company was known by - Fire Fighting Pacific. Our company, FFP Canterbury Limited, is the largest and most successful of these.
A major ownership change occurred in 1998, injecting business capability and new vision into the company and Fire Fighting Pacific has grown since to become the premiere provider of fire systems in Canterbury and the West Coast with over 70 staff. Branches exist in Christchurch and in Timaru, with agents operating in Hanmer Springs and on the West Coast.
The diverse skill range and access to the latest technology and the best in local equipment backed up with independent access to international suppliers, provides expertise at the top level in all manner of fire system design, supply and installation. Not having an international parent company means we are not bound with one chain of supply or one brand we have to push. We have the ability to recommend the product or service from anywhere in the world that best suits our customer, not our international coffers.
If you want to speak to a call centre in Melbourne about responding a technician to your site, or if you really need your fire contractor to have an accounts department in India, then we are definitely not for you. If you are looking for the "Peanuts / Monkeys" end of the market or for a contractor who only provides short term solutions, then we can recommend some companies who will be right up your alley. When you get sick of these come and talk to our team.
