About Safe Industries

Safe Industries isn’t just a dealer of safety and firefighting equipment. It’s a team committed to serving our clients. We are founded by a firefighter and military veteran, and many of our employees are current or former rescue professionals. That’s the reason we care so much about offering quality products and unmatched service—because we know how important it is for the products we sell to work correctly every time they are used.

Al Willimon

Originally from Pickens, South Carolina, Al attended the business school at Clemson University and received his paramedic degree from Greenville Tech. Al spent nine years in the military with the Army, including three years of active duty. At the age of 20, Al also began serving as a volunteer firefighter in Anderson County, and in 1998 began his career as a firefighter in Simpsonville. Al continued working in the fire service until 2011.

Al’s passion for taking care of the needs of firefighters is now reflected in Safe Industries, which he founded in 2005. Safe Industries currently covers three states—South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee—and serves the fire service, nuclear industry and industrial markets.

In 2013, Al acquired FES, which is located in Sumter, S.C. FES (Fire Equipment Services) specializes in the design and fabrication of custom built specialty fire apparatus. They also refurbish and service apparatus, as well as supply equipment to area fire departments. Between both companies, there are five locations and approximately 110 employees.
