Classic Fire + Life Safety is marking 10 years of business this year in Winnipeg.
Founded in 2012 under the FCFP banner, the fire sprinkler, alarm, and security systems organization completed a rebrand in late November 2021. Its name was changed to Classic Fire + Life Safety, a reflection of its merger with Classic Fire Protection.
“I have been here for just over two years, and I have seen tremendous growth during this short time,” said Randy Skromeda, western regional manager for Classic FLS in a statement.
Since the beginning of his time with the company, Skromeda’s primary role has been to help run the Manitoba office. The branch’s initial focus was on new construction projects while team members were also encouraged to strengthen their presence in the community.
Classic FLS says Skromeda broadened this focus by growing the service side of the business, which now includes code compliant preventative maintenance and repairs for clients.
The organization says that while visiting Portage & Main, it has become common to see a Classic Fire + Life Safety white van or truck, adorned with the newly created logo, a corporate signature that features a “C” in the shape of a shield and cornerstone.
“I am looking forward to the future of our company, especially in this exciting and growing part of the country,” said Francois Godin, CEO of Classic FLS in a statement.
“Our team in Winnipeg represents a strong base and foundation from which to grow westwards. I’m excited to see what comes next.”
In the last decade, Classic FLS has focused its efforts on account management, acquiring new clients and maintaining good relations with existing clients.
In 2020, the team was composed of four employees. It has now grown to 10 – and looking to add more. Its largest project to date has been a contract for a women’s hospital, delivering fire sprinkler protection systems to this facility.
