Facility to include industrial response training centre and incident response team as well as custom-made response equipment.

Tyco is celebrating the grand opening of a new state-of-the-art operational facility in Port Arthur, Texas, for its Williams Fire & Hazard Control (WF&HC) solutions team.

“Our Williams Fire & Hazard Control solution is a critical component of our operations, and builds on decades of leadership in fire protection for the oil, gas and petrochemical industry,” said Colleen Repplier, President, Tyco Fire Protection Products. “The legacy that our WF&HC team continues to build here supports our leadership in research, product development, educational services and emergency response.”

The Port Arthur facility is home to an elite team of WF&HC industrial emergency firefighters. Core to the site’s operations is the engineering, production and testing of WF&HC’s large volume supply and delivery fire protection equipment, including: Dependapower fire water pumps; portable and remote controlled monitor packages for manual firefighting and fixed suppression systems; foam and dual agent response trailers; Hydro-Chem dry chemical equipment; and Thunerstorm foam fire suppression agents.

A high-tech classroom for year-round continuing education and accredited fire protection curricula offers one of the industry’s best industrial fire suppression training programs. Education focuses on response tactics, equipment operations and command logistics, with hands-on training and demonstrations at the flow manifold and water monitor located onsite.

“With this new facility, Tyco is building on 30 years of local leadership in the Texas Golden Triangle. We also are investing in our capabilities to serve our industrial customers around the world,” said Marc Lemberg, Vice President, Strategy & Marketing, Tyco Fire Protection Products.

Tyco is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony for employees and local officials on October 2, at the new Williams Fire & Hazard Control location, at 9605 Richard Wycoff Drive, Port Arthur, Texas.
