As a leading manufacturer of advanced life safety systems, SUMMIT maintains an unwavering commitment to product quality – from initial product design and throughout many years of installed service.
SUMMIT is uniquely able to boost that our advanced Fire Alarm and Communications Systems are completely designed, engineered and manufactured here in North America, utilizing an 82,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility and a staff of over 320 skilled people.
