About ABR Fire Protection, Inc. – Our History

Say something interesting about your business here. With a long history of involvement in the fire sprinkler industry Clayton Knowles, ABR’s founder, felt there was room for improvement in how business was run. Not only focusing on the quality and accuracy of jobs from inception to completion, ABR turned its focus to ensure that clients as well as ABR’s 32 employees were treated with the respect and loyalty they deserve. Based on this concept of quality, accuracy, respect and loyalty, Clayton Knowles founded ABR Fire Protection in April 2000. 


 Shortly after ABR’s inception, industry expert Mike Pettis was welcomed to the team with open arms and gracious hearts. The ABR team was now ready to change the industry and grow. 


 Working closely with our vendors, we quickly discovered that most of our clients had very similar needs. This resulted in ABR building streamlined services and processes relevant to the client’s needs. With top notch service and support, quickly grew to over 32 employees and over 5,000 clients over the last 15 years. With over 200 years of combined experience at ABR, there is nothing that we have not seen, dealt with and solved.
