“Successful People are not gifted; they just WORK HARD then Succeed on Purpose”
Tempest Fire Protection was founded in 1997 by Jack AND JOSIE Richardson on the idea that Alberta construction needed a high-integrity, relationship-focused fire protection company. He was determined to build a reputable company known for a job well done and based on the trust of a handshake. In 2014, our current president Adam Richardson completed the acquisition of Tempest and fully transitioned into leadership after 12 years in the field and office. Our founder’s vision continues to be our vision today: a company built on the speed of trust with a focus on delivering customers enduring value and quality service.
In 2016 Tempest embraced the challenges of a changing business landscape and the pervasive ineffectiveness of traditional construction to formalize a Continuous Improvement initiative. By combining the in-house expertise of the fire protection industry with the wisdom of the Toyota Production System, Tempest created a recipe for success. Rooted in the principles of lean construction, Tempest now works daily to minimize waste and maximize customer value.
