Our story begins over 100 years ago in the Pacific Northwest. Founded originally in 1916 as one of the first companies in the country to specialize in the sales and service of personal protective equipment, a natural foray into the fire service industry occurred. In the early 1950's Sanderson began to design, sell, install, and service fire suppression systems and equipment for various industries throughout the Northwest. As one of the oldest ANSUL distributors in the country, we bring extensive experience and professionalism to our work. Our goal is to provide exceptional service and support for our customers in an effort to develop long term successful business relationships.
