History and Track Record
• History and Track Record – The Fire Protection Services Company you choose needs to have one. Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens or Staten Island, customers want references and you need a company with a history of excellence.
From it’s humble beginnings in 1970’s New York City to it’s current status as an NYC Commercial Mechanical Fire Protection Services Company, Master Fire Mechanical has served Manhattan Hotels, Brooklyn Restaurants, Bronx Auto Body Repair Shops, Airports in Queens and Industrial Sites on Staten Island.
The history of Master Fire Prevention is humble indeed. We’re a classic family owned business with a track record. The company was started by a social worker named Peter Martinez Sr. who sold fire extinguishers door to door in his extra time. During a very difficult period in New York City history, Martinez Sr. was part of the solution to help New York get back on it’s feet.
Joined by his son Peter Martinez, Jr., the elder Peter opened a garage storefront in the Van Nest section of the Bronx, NY where he sold and recharged fire extinguishers. Calling the company Master Fire Prevention, The Martinez’s outgrew their space and opened up a larger operation at its current Tremont Avenue location, where the sprawling store has over 60 employees. The company has expanded far beyond selling and recharging fire extinguishers to commercial kitchen design build, fire sprinkler systems, fire suppression system design and installation, commercial ventilation and exhaust systems and more.
Now run by Peter Marinez Junior who is aided by his son Justin Martinez, Master Fire Prevention has added it’s own state of the art fabrication facility where the company custom builds to spec its own hoods, ductwork and more.
Inspections, testing, expediting and compliance services are also now a significant part of Master Fire’s business as well as the Fire Protection Mechanical division.
Remember, when it comes to selecting a Fire Protection Services Company, you want to see references, and pick a company with a long history and track record.
