Reliable Celebrates Centennial

January 23, 1920, Frank J. Fee formed The Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Co., Inc.

One hundred years later the company – now led by his grandsons and great-grandsons – remains true to Frank’s original vision: high-quality USA-designed and produced products, service, and a commitment to never compete with our customers.
