This past 2022, Industrial Fire Products Corp. celebrated its 30th anniversary by rebranding to Paladius. It was a necessary change to reflect not only the new reality of the company but also the industry it serves in a constantly changing world. Being able to tend to and attract sectors beyond fire and emergency has been part of Paladius' plan to supply heroes in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean since its inception.
Industrial Fire was born from the need to provide specialized equipment and services to the fire sector in Puerto Rico. Over the years, a series of technological advances and this slight transformative movement called globalization–you may have heard of it–have facilitated the process of seeking, ordering, and offering equipment and services to a broader sector. This sector includes security, EMS, construction, and beyond.
In past capsules of our Punta de Lanza content series, the team shared their memories and experiences during the Industrial Fire Products Corp. era and talked about the universe of rescuers and first responders currently in Puerto Rico. In these chapters, we will meet with more experts from the Paladius team and discuss the industry's current state, the events that marked it, and their hopes for the future.
“We were participating in the rescue efforts [of 9/11]. Hand in hand with the specialized search and rescue teams of the United States, it was ten days of a lot of work and stress. Actually, it has been the one event, for the past (27 or 28 years that I have been in the industry) [...] that has impacted me the most.”
–Michael Arroyo, Sales Representative EMS
