We’re in the risk management business. With our help, our clients keep their fire sprinkler systems safe. Whether it’s a risk to lives, structures, properties, or everyday business, we guide clients to the best answer for their safety. Corrosion is our enemy and safety is our goal.
To accomplish that goal, we’ve come to understand why and how corrosion happens. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution because a truly cost-effective combination of devices, systems, and management approaches depends on your individual needs. And we never stop finding new and better ways to serve those needs. Being the first hasn’t made us the best—working the hardest for the longest has.
HOW WE GOT HERE
Fire Protection Systems Corrosion Management, Inc. (“fpsCMI”) was incorporated in St. Louis, Missouri in January 2003. In the beginning, we were a group of design-firm engineers that saw a big problem. A large retail client needed help fighting corrosion—and no one could provide a proven solution.
Five years of rigorous design and engineering later, we launched our own suite of corrosion management products. But it wasn’t enough to simply treat the symptoms. We began to hunt down the root cause of corrosion in fire sprinkler systems. The answer: oxygen. In response, we developed a patented process that would eliminate oxygen by inerting systems with nitrogen gas.
Then, in March of 2013, the management team of fpsCMI worked with a group of private investors to acquire the company from the initial group of shareholders. Drawing on the extensive engineering experience of the team, the newly formed company called itself Engineered Corrosion Solutions (ECS). Today, we continue to work tirelessly to provide the best solutions to your fire sprinkler corrosion problems.
