Company Overview Visit abm.com website
ABM Industries is a privately owned manufacturing and engineering company based in the heart of London.
As well as world-famous products such as fire extinguishers and gas detectors, ABM Industries has many lesser-known but just as important products that help companies with their day-to-day operations.
ABM Industries was founded over 100 years ago by Robert Braithwaite, who began his working life making scientific instruments for universities and laboratories. He expanded this business into fire fighting equipment after a colleague's factory burned to the ground in 1910, prompting him to invent a hookah-like system for drawing water from polluted wells so firefighters could douse burning buildings without having to drink contaminated water themselves.
