Our 28,000 square foot building houses sales, engineering, warehousing, fabrication, and fleet maintenance operations.

We are one of the largest fire protection companies in the New York metro area. We are family owned and operated which means we are accountable only to our customers, not to shareholders. Our ownership is hands-on, and has a “whatever it takes” philosophy to achieve customer satisfaction.  Prior to our founding in 1988, one of our founders and present CEO, Frank Savino, worked for ten years in a technical capacity for several large national fire protection companies where he began his passion for the business and his love of learning about fire system technology. United Fire Protection Corporation is staffed and led by many dedicated professionals in various capacities that include sales, engineering, installation, and service. In each of these disciplines, our department head is a person with more than 25 years experience in fire protection technology.

There are many other veteran field and support people with similar experience that mentor our younger associates. This “experience” factor gives our clients the peace of mind in knowing that the responsibility for their vital life safety fire protection systems is always being handled or overseen by highly experienced and competent persons.


Our Mission

Our mission is to be an innovative technology leader and to be the highest quality full service provider of fire system products and services in our market.
