The dangers of fire, explosion and overpressure are well-known in a number of industries, and the technology that protects against these dangers is correspondingly mature. However, as in any technological field, there is always room for improvement and space in which to distance oneself from competitors through superior quality and service. This is the goal of the American fire, explosion and overpressure protection specialist, the Fike Corporation. Founded in 1945 and headquartered in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA, it now has a global remit with a client list of blue-chip, Fortune 500 companies. It has been represented in the European market by Fike Europe BVBA since 1984.
