Kidde Fire Systems, Ashland, Mass., announced the unification of Fenwal Protection Systems and Chemetron Fire Systems into one brand, the newly expanded Kidde Fire Systems. This transition will strengthen customer focus, increase service and training efficiency, emphasize expertise in an array of vertical segments, and accelerate product and technology development, the company stated.

Kidde Fire Systems is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. “This unification sharpens our customer focus and leverages our collective leadership in the industry. Combining the unique strengths of these three UTC Building & Industrial Systems special hazard fire protection brands into one strengthens our ability to provide flexibility and efficiencies to our customers,” said Mike Burcham, president and general manager, Kidde Fire Systems.

The first new Kidde Fire Systems product platform will be available in early 2015, showcasing enhanced system performance. The Fenwal Controls business unit of Kidde-Fenwal Inc., provider of high-quality custom- and standard-engineered gas ignition and temperature controls, will be unaffected by this change.
