For more than two decades, the TRI-MAX™ brand has been synonymous with quality and innovation in the fire technology industry. Founded by Dave Mahrt, Kingsway, the manufacturer of TRI-MAX™ Cold CAF, has sold over 10,000 fire suppression systems to the military, public agencies, industrial contractors and private companies world-wide.
As a Gun Ship helicopter pilot and Chief Warrant officer in Vietnam and a Forest Service contracted fire suppression pilot for over 20 years, Dave witnessed firsthand the inadequacy of today’s equipment and its inability to combat fires efficiently. Committed to making the trade a safer place, he created what is known today as the “TRI-MAX™ Cold CAF family” of fire suppression systems.
To date, the company has assembled a team of practiced engineers, fire fighters, tool makers, grant writers and sales professionals that share Dave Mahrt’s commitment and values; people he and his clients can trust.
