Carrier (CARR) Boosts Fire & Security Segment Via HI-FOG LPU

Read MoreHide Full Article

Carrier Global Corporation’s (CARR - Free Report) subsidiary Marioff has been consistently expanding the fire and security segment as well as fire protection systems offerings.

This is evident from the fact that the company recently unveiled the new core of land fire protection systems, namely the Marioff HI-FOG Land Pump Unit (LPU).

HI-FOG Land Pump is compact, cost-efficient and easy to maintain. Additionally, it can be used with HI-FOG 3000 sprinklers for providing a highly-efficient water mist solution.

Further, the Land Pump has received approval from FM and VdS for land applications. This shows the robustness of the device.

More Marioff Efforts

The recent solution has added strength to Marioff’s portfolio offerings. The company has been gaining momentum with reliable and efficient solutions including water mist, fire protection for marine, and lifecycle services.

Additionally, growing product certification approvals remain noteworthy. The company recently received an extended FM Approval for Marioff HI-FOG high-pressure water mist fire protection system with an electric pump unit. The approval helped Marioff deliver fire protection for combustion turbines and machinery with enclosures up to 2300 cube-meters.

Further, strength in its portfolio solutions has been aiding the company to expand the customer base. Last year, Marioff inked an agreement with Rauma Marine Constructions for providing HI-FOG fire protection systems to the Finland navy.

Also, Marioff extended its BluEdge Elite service agreement with Carnival Corporation & PLC to provide a comprehensive preventive maintenance program for the latter’s fleet.

Strength in Fire & Security Segment

The introduction of the Marioff HI-FOG Land Pump Unit has added strength to Carrier’s Fire and Security segment.

Further, the segment has been benefiting from the company’s other subsidiaries of the same segment, namely Det-Tronics, Kidde, Edwards, Onity, Fireye, Supra and others.

Recently, Carrier acquired BrokerBay to make it part of Supra for offering advanced digital solutions to North American real estate agents. This remains a positive for segmental growth.

In addition, Det-Tronics introduced the BluEdge service platform that offers various services to customers who operate high-hazard petroleum, oil and gas facilities.

Thus, this segment has become an integral part of the company, which generated $1.4 billion in revenues, accounting for 27.9% of total fourth-quarter net sales and increasing 2.4% on a year-over-year basis.
