Leadership Message

"Be part of our success story."

Since 1945, Vipond continues protecting men, women, children and property every minute of every day from the ravages of fire or intrusion in all types of buildings, from single-family homes, nursing homes, shopping plazas, office buildings, and hospitals to nuclear power plants.

Vipond's team of approximately 1,100 specialists is comprised of sales representatives, professional engineers, qualified system designers, certified installers and service technicians, who demonstrate personal pride and commitment to ensure our customers are treated with the highest level of ethics and integrity while providing cost-effective solutions for all their fire protection and security needs.

Vipond's dedicated team continues to lead the Canadian Fire Protection and Security industry in a national role with emphasis on improving quality and workplace safety while installing life safety systems to "Protect What You Value Most®."

In an effort to strengthen the industry, Vipond's proactive leadership participates in many national and local construction associations, including the Canadian Automatic Sprinkler Association, Canadian Fire Alarm Association, Joint Training and Apprenticeship Committee and the Canadian Construction Association.

Our employees consistently express how proud they are to be involved in the highest quality of Life Safety systems in buildings located across Canada and internationally.

Gordon Vipond understood the value of building strong relationships. This culture is carried through today as Vipond provides growth opportunities for employees in a safe and creative environment to build lasting relationships with our customers and vendors.
