Marioff was founded in 1985 with pure entrepreneurial spirit and a motivating mission: protect people, property and business from fire, on land and at sea. The spirit lives on in a story of continuous growth. Marioff is today the world's leading supplier of water mist fire protection systems.
The company's background in marine and offshore high-pressure hydraulics (hence the name, MARIne and OFFshore) led to the development of a fire protection technology using the best attributes of a truly environmentally benign agent: water. Since its launch in 1991, HI-FOG® has earned a reputation for superior fire suppression performance, becoming the standard for water mist fire protection.
Key to this success has been the company's extensive research and development program carried out with leading independent authorities and fire testing laboratories. In 1992 Marioff received the prestigious Seatrade Safety at Sea Award, and the President of Finland presented the Innovation in Finland award in 1995.
Marioff’s greatest reward is the growing list of fires suppressed or extinguished by HI-FOG®, both at sea and on land. Already a trusted solution at sea, HI-FOG® is becoming increasingly important on land. With a growing number of protected installations, the range of both marine and offshore applications of HI-FOG® continues to expand.
In September of 2007 Marioff was acquired by UTC Fire & Security, marking the beginning of a new era in its history.
