Who We Are

Clayton Norred originally entered the fire protection business in 1981 when he started a small fire extinguisher service business, The Fire Station, Inc. In 1993 the name was changed to Fire-Quip Corporation to reflect the broad scope of services that were provided. Fire-Quip expanded to three locations, Monroe, Ruston and Shreveport, Louisiana and was the dominant fire equipment service company in northern Louisiana.
In 1999 Fire-Quip Corporation was sold to Grinnell Fire Protection (Tyco). Mr. Norred worked as District General Manager until his noncompete expired. With the support of customers and employees Norred re-entered the market with his new company, Norred Fire Systems, LLC. In 2001.
Today, Norred Fire Systems is a full-service fire protection company, offering fire extinguishers, fire alarms, fire sprinklers and fire suppression systems for vehicles, commercial kitchens and Industrial applications.
In 2003 Norred was awarded the Rivertown Award of Excellence by the Monroe and West Monroe Chambers of Commerce. The award recognizes the outstanding small business in Ouachita parish.
