Fire Control Systems, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Ralph E. Johnson in Cantonment, FL as a Fire Control Instruments dealer. Mr. Johnson wore many hats (all of them!) and developed a reputation for quality work at a fair price.
As demand for his expertise grew he had to hire office personnel and an additional technician. He hired Christopher M. Pecore in 1998 who became the lead technician for the company. That same year F.C.S., Inc. became an Edwards System Technology (EST) dealer and later a strategic partner.
Over the years the business continued to grow, employees were added, and more product lines were added. One thing that didn’t change was F.C.S.’ dedication to providing quality products and exceptional value.
In 2003 Mr. Johnson hired Matthew R. Merritt who quickly became responsible for the majority of estimating and sales work.
Mr. Johnson decided to retire and in April of 2007 he turned over all operation of the company to longtime employees Matthew R. Merritt and Christopher M. Pecore.
In April 2012 Matt and Chris purchased the company from Mr. Johnson and are now co-owners.
Matt and Chris, as well as all of the employees of F.C.S., Inc., are committed to making this company “The best in the business".
