Marioff Celebrates 30 Years of Protecting People, Property and Business
14 August 2015

2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the creation of Marioff. Since its formation in August 1985, Marioff has been a leader in the water mist fire protection industry.

The Marioff story began in Finland, where its headquarters and factory are located today. The company soon expanded its activities into other European countries as early as 1995. Initially dedicated to shipyards and oil and gas platforms, Marioff established its land division in 2002.

As the pioneer of water mist fire protection technology, Marioff launched its innovative HI-FOG® system in 1991, following with the HI-FOG® 1000 in 1995. The HI-FOG® system safely controls and suppresses fire using significantly less water than conventional sprinkler systems - reducing water damage, cleanup time and operational downtime, while creating a cooling effect for safe evacuation. HI-FOG® has undergone thousands of full-scale fire tests and has been tested for a greater number of different applications than any other fire protection system. HI-FOG® has been issued over 100 VdS, FM and other approvals over the years.

Today, distributors, subsidiaries and partners are located around the world, allowing the company to serve its customers regardless of their location. Marioff now supports customers throughout the life of its installations, with an extended services offering ranging from rapid delivery of spare parts and full maintenance, to turnkey system upgrades and customized, long-term service agreements.

Marioff’s worldwide success over the past 30 years as the world’s largest supplier of water mist fire protection technology is thanks to employees driven by the “Marioff spirit” of dedication and creativity, and the company’s pursuit of innovative technical solutions in service of customer safety and satisfaction.

Marioff continues to build upon its rich legacy of innovation. Marking the occasion of this special 30-year celebration, Marioff has launched the next generation HI-FOG® 3000 nozzle and introduced the Electric Pump Unit (EPU) to the water mist fire protection segment.

Marioff employees would like to thank all customers and partners who have made the achievements of the past 30 years possible. Marioff is proud to continue fulfilling its mission of protecting people, property and business continuity for many years to come.
