Paladius is many things to different people. It is an unparalleled resource for the heroes who depend on us and provides essential tools, knowledge, and trust. For the Paladius team, it is a home and a platform to use their experiences to influence an industry that desperately needs role models like them. Paladius is a local family business in its most basic and authentic form. It was created by Puerto Ricans who love their community and who have a sense of responsibility for doing something extraordinary for people who do extraordinary things every day.
After 30 years serving heroes as Industrial Fire Products Corp, founders Carlos and Nivia decided to expand our products, service offerings and revamp the brand. “Industrial Fire was my baby, it’s what got us to where we are today, and it means a lot to me. However, we understood that Industrial Fire limited us to one sector and that we were ready to expand our range of products and services,” said Carlos Riego about the decision to transform Industrial Fire into Paladius in 2022.
Paloma and Alberto Riego, children of our founders and students of what used to be Industrial Fire since 1992, presented a new path for the business. They preserve the care and attention we offer to the fire and emergency sectors while expanding the business towards new horizons.
Today, with the contribution of the new generation of Paladius and the experience of the veterans who helped build the industry, we're able to offer a mix of products and services that appeal to and contribute to sectors beyond fire and rescue. Professionals and heroes in healthcare, forensics, construction, telecommunications, etc., can count on Paladius to supply them with the latest advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment. Additionally, we offer guidance at every step of the process.
It's also worth highlighting that we have established ties with more partners than ever! Today, we have top manufacturers like 3M, Faro, Skydio, LVT, and many more on our side – relationships that have expanded with the arrival of the new generation. We have also had the opportunity to maximize the expansion of Paladius to the rest of the Caribbean. You can learn more about our efforts to expand our capabilities to the Caribbean in our very own Peter Dahlstrom capsule.
"To be an agent of change in future generations that we can inspire to become rescuers, heroes… I know it would fill me with great pride to be able to continue my parents' legacy."
– Paloma Riego, Operations and Procurement Manager.
