Since 1989, Walschon Fire Protection has served the greater San Francisco Bay Area's fire protection needs. Founded 28 years ago by George Walschon the company now employs over 50 employees. Hard work, dedication and commitment to providing exceptional customer service is the foundation for our success.

In 2014 Walschon Fire Protection Inc. successfully converted to a 98% employee owned corporation. Walschon Fire Protection Inc. is now among only a small handful of bay area contractors that are proud to say they are employee owned.

“I wanted to give your folks a big atta-boy!
Your guys did a great job for us here. Kraig and Pat helped me scheduled everything perfectly and in all my years of doing this, I’ve never seen a crew install drops as quickly as you did here. They simply flew. Each one of your guys had a great attitude and was easy to work with.
Thank you George, another job well done!”
— Brian Gilroy, TBI Construction & Construction Management, Inc.

“Walschon is a very easy subcontractor to work with. James Meeks and the team assigned to The Plant Project has been nothing but accommodating with the continual design revisions and coordination with multiple subcontractors. They are proactive in the work they install and have both the budget and end user in mind with their suggestions. Both the office and field staff are very responsive working through the challenges of the project from beginning to end.

Thank you very much on a job well done!!”
— Sarah Sampilo, Project Manager Turner Construction
