Our North American sales team met at the 2022 NFPA Conference & Expo® at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. NFPA consists of three partial EXPO days and a large educational conference. Our team for this event included: Hernan Barrientos, regional sales VP – eastern North American, George Ciottone, regional sales VP – eastern North American, Kevin Cusack, regional sales VP – western North American, Jeff O’Donnell, business development VP for military, government and OEM, and Ed Ruggles, CSO.

This annual event has been cancelled the last two years due to COVID-19. It was a welcome change for our team to be able to network and discuss solutions with many safety and fire industry professionals again. Many of our distributor partners were also in attendance and it is always great to see them.

We had many discussions on important topics including protecting energy storage systems, EV battery charging stations, as well as the trending changes with the AIM Act.
