About us - Company Background
MC Fire Protection, trading as MCFP Ltd, was founded in 2000 by Mike Chilman, who is the owner and Managing Director of the company. Mike had an upbringing and background in agriculture. He worked in Farm Management, Agricultural sales and engineering until 1995, when he joined a national fire safety company in Luton as a Fire Extinguisher Sales Executive. When Fire Protection Services made 90 people redundant, some of his clients suggest that he started his own company, so this was when Mike nervously started his own Fire Safety Company. He wanted to iron out the problems and inefficiencies of the large Fire companies he had come to know; to create a refined Fire Safety company who were honest, professional, reliable, prompt and integral.
This is how it started and now the company employs a superb team of engineers, service managers, administration and financial personnel plus sales executives throughout Southern England. MCFP also have to their credit a strong, valued customer base which is diverse from large to small, rural to City, housing to industrial.
“We passionately believe in providing an outstanding service to all our clients, based on prompt, accurate service, with integrity, professionalism and value for money”. Michael Chilman
