Company History


Viking Fire Protection started in 1953 with companies in Tampa, FL., Atlanta, GA., and High Point, NC. Through mergers and acquisitions, Viking Fire Protection, Inc. of the Southeast was created in 1962 with the home office located in Atlanta and branch offices in Tampa and High Point.

The company prospered during the 1960s – 1980s, serving the East Coast from Virginia to Florida. In 1986, a branch office was also opened in Florence SC. Unfortunately, a slowing economy and construction recession from 1988-92 caused a closing of the offices in Tampa and Atlanta. Viking’s home office was formally relocated to High Point, NC in 1996, where it has thrived ever since.

The principals in Viking Fire Protection, Chairman Joe Collins and President Buzz Waller, together have over 90 years of fire protection experience.

“We are honored to have provided full-service fire protection for this area for so many years,” says Collins. “We value customer service and work to develop a relationship with companies so that we can help with inspections, repairs, and future renovations.”
