Eagle Fire secures new building

Statewide coverage of accounts made easier
Friday, February 1, 2002

WINTER PARK, Fla.-Eagle Fire Protection Inc. relocated to new offices here, an 8,900-square-foot building that provides the company with easier access to the state's highway system to serve its customers located statewide.

"We're close to everything. We're about a mile away from the Greenway expansion and that allows you to go just about anyplace around here on the turnpike and interstate system," said Benny Heath, president and co-owner of Eagle Fire Protection, a company that specializes in design, fabricating and installing fire sprinkler systems in new and existing buildings. The company is also owned by Eddie Miller, vice president.

The cost of the building, built for the company in the Winter Park Industrial Park, was not released.

With 40 employees, the company serves customers as far away as the Florida Keys and the Panhandle. Recent customers have included a Home Depot store in Jacksonville, a Target store in New Tampa, and Sea World's new roller coaster ride.

The new location marks the third move for the 16-year-old company, but this time the fire firm is now located in a building all its own.

"Under one roof were three different tenants," said Heath.

"We had separate offices, but had to share power so if there was a problem on one side of the building with power that affected us."
