Chemguard acquires Williams Fire and Hazard Control

Published:  01 September, 2010

Chemguard, a producer of firefighting foam concentrates and foam systems, has acquired Williams Fire & Hazard Control as a wholly owned subsidiary.

The acquisition – which combines Chemguard's extensive R&D, manufacturing, and systems engineering experience with Williams' expertise in flammable-liquid fire fighting – effectively integrates surfactant research, foam pump design, systems development, and fire-fighting technical expertise.

Together, Chemguard and Williams offer products and services for industrial, petrochemical/energy, transportation/freight, military, municipal, offshore, and airport hangar applications.

In a joint announcement, Chemguard President Roger Bower and Dwight Williams of Williams Fire & Hazard Control noted the impact of the acquisition on the firefighting industry.  "The Chemguard-Williams partnership enables us to maximise the unique strengths of each of our companies, broadening the market base of both firms and enhancing our service to the industry.  Working together, Chemguard and Williams can serve the firefighting industry as the leading source of foam concentrates and foam application expertise, while also continuing to push the development of advanced foam concentrates."

As privately held companies with decades of industry experience, Chemguard and Williams benefit from talented and dedicated, long-time employees with deep knowledge of firefighting technologies and applications.  The two firms will collaborate strategically to further enhance their strengths and build on their partnership.  Dwight Williams will continue to oversee the day-to-day activities of Williams, which will remain in Mauriceville, Texas.
