About Fox Valley Fire & Safety

Our Story

Fox Valley Fire & Safety ElginSince 1960, Fox Valley Fire & Safety has been focused on meeting the needs of our customers. The two founders of our company began working out of a basement, with one truck selling fire extinguishers and servicing them onsite. From these humble beginnings, we now have over 100 service vehicles and more than 250 employees working out of our modern 46,000 sq.ft. building. Our focus today remains on meeting the needs of our customers.

In 1997 the founders retired and sold the majority of the company to a group of five managers, all of whom had between 20 to 36 years of dedicated service with Fox Valley Fire & Safety. A significant portion of the business was also sold to the employees through an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). In this way, all of the employees have a vested interest in the success of the company.

As the fire protection landscape continues to change, our customers rely on Fox Valley Fire & Safety’s knowledge and experience to help them stay current with these changes. Leading the way, Fox Valley Fire & Safety has expanded our products and services to include Fire Alarm, Restaurant Commercial Cooking Systems, Emergency and Exit Lighting, Security Systems, Access Systems, Engineered Suppression Systems, Vehicle Suppression Systems and, most recently, Wireless Radio Monitoring for Fire Alarm Systems.

Fox Valley Fire & Safety is the one company that does it all.
