PFE-Tag-1959

History

A Third-Generation Pittsburgh Company

In 1959, Henry Becker founded Pittsburgh Fire Extinguisher. For nearly three decades, the company exclusively supplied fire extinguisher equipment and services to landmark institutions in the Pittsburgh region. For part of that time, our offices were located in the old Empire Building, which was demolished in 1984 to make way for the new Fifth Avenue Place.  We avoided the impact of that change by relocating to the North Shore in 1979.

With Innovation Comes Evolution

In the late 80’s, Pittsburgh Fire Extinguisher expanded operations to include emergency lighting and fire suppression. After that, the growth continued and fire alarms and sprinkler systems were added to the PFE list of services. The company name was slightly updated to reflect our comprehensive fire and safety solutions, and we have been PFE Fire and Safety Corporation ever since.

PFE Fire and Safety Corporation is determined to remain a leader in the safety industry. We believe that staying in the forefront of technology is important, and now offer home automation and closed-circuit television to our list of products and services to keep your home and business protected.

Continuing the Tradition

Today, PFE is managed by Jeffrey Becker, the grandson of founder Henry Becker. We are now a highly qualified team of fire and safety specialists offering efficient, high-quality safety solutions to businesses throughout Western Pennsylvania. By staying committed to quality, we have been delivering our brand promise for more than 50 years — Safety Designed for Your Peace of Mind.
