AFEX, the leading manufacturer of fire suppression systems for mobile heavy equipment is celebrating 50 years of helping our customers maximize their safety and productivity.
Bill Lease founded the company in 1968 as Lease-AFEX, Inc., primarily to serve the Southeastern timber harvesting industry, and the waste handling industry shortly thereafter.
Bonaventure Group, Inc. purchased AFEX in 1986, and expanded into other heavy industries such as mining, steel, and oil and gas as well as international markets.
Today, AFEX systems can be found on all 7 continents, protecting all types of equipment. Although we have grown and expanded many times over, we remain focused on manufacturing only effective, reliable, purpose-built products designed to withstand the abuse of heavy industry.
It's all we do.
