It started with one idea - and some much-needed funding from mom. In 1976, 30-year-old Werner Wagner started his fire protection engineering firm from the basement of his childhood home in Germany. In 1982, the company secured a million dollar order to develop an outdoor lighting, video monitoring and detection system at a nuclear interim storage facility. It was WAGNER’s first big deal - and even at that early stage, it was the company’s unique approach to delivering fire protection systems - addressing fires before they even started - that sealed the deal.
That deal exceeded WAGNER’s expectations - and Werner Wagner has been determined to exceed his customers’ expectations ever since. Today, WAGNER’s unique fire protection systems have been installed for thousands of clients around the world. With more than 500 employees, annual revenues exceeding $93 million in 2016, dozens of global offices, in-house R&D and engineering and more - WAGNER continues to innovate every step of the way.
