Clarke Fire Protection Products sold its ﬁrst diesel ﬁre pump driver in 1964 as a regional distributor for GM Diesel. We began manufacturing our own UL-FM driver in 1980 and now market the largest line of diesel ﬁre pump drivers in the world. To date more than 55,000 engines have been supplied.
From its beginning, Clarke has taken the lead in discovering and responding to, the needs of the ﬁre protection industry. By combining engineering expertise with a knack for problem solving, we’ve developed ﬁre protection product solutions that improve safety, increase reliability, save money and protect the environment. Many of our engineered solutions are recognized as industry “ﬁrsts”.
Clarke introduced dual starting technology as well as increased diesel engine reliability and performance. Our driveshaft style couplings solved ﬁeld alignment problems, and signiﬁcantly reduced the time needed for engine/ﬁre pump installation and maintenance.
Clarke responded quickly and effectively to environmental reforms, introducing new UL-FM engine models that complied with EPA emission regulations. Clarke Fire Protection Products has implemented an exciting, ongoing and continuous product improvement program which will provide even more high quality Clarke engine models to meet and exceed the demands of our growing Global market place.
