Firetech Celebrates Our 30th Anniversary


Proudly Marking Three Decades of Service

The Firetech team in their office

As we start celebrating our 30th anniversary here at Firetech Sprinkler Corp., we’d like to take a moment to reflect on where we came from and share our vision for the future. We also want to take this opportunity to thank our current customers, without whom we would not be where we are today!

30 Years of Service: Firetech Celebrates an Important Milestone

What better time than the occasion of our three decades in business to recognize our team, our achievements, and our customers?

When Lee and Lori Lawton founded Firetech Sprinkler Corp. in 1992, they relied on their previous experience as entrepreneurs to create and build a fire and life safety business that could respond to the realities of an increasingly sophisticated building industry. They recognized the need for a full-service, professional sprinkler contractor that could offer the highest level of fire safety services to businesses in Vermont, New Hampshire, northeastern New York, and beyond.

Thirty years on, the business is now managed by Lee’s and Lori’s daughter, Deborah Lawton Winters. Together with Controller Dave Hutchins, Service Operations Manager Mike Trombly, and Operations Manager Bruce Pelkey, Deborah remains committed to delivering the high standard of care her parents used to ensure customer and client satisfaction.

At Firetech, our focus is on providing our customers with the professionalism, staff proficiency, and attention to detail they deserve. We’re committed to providing you with nothing less than the best, investing in the latest sprinkler system technologies, tools, and techniques.

Our Employees: The Backbone of Our Success

Firetech has been fortunate to bring on some of the best people in the business as team members. Highly skilled and knowledgeable, they’re also accomplished and incredibly good people.
