Founded in 2002, we opened our first office in Spruce Grove, Alberta —a small town west of Edmonton. Initially specializing in instrumentation and burner services, Profire quickly became known as combustion experts. Increasing regulatory pressure and code requirements mandated the use of an auto ignition system to light oil and gas production and processing equipment as opposed to the traditional “rag-and-stick” method. Due to our expertise, Profire technicians were often called upon to repair and maintain other companies’ auto ignition systems.
With our industry background, three of the original team members, who are still Profire employees, began developing our own auto ignition system. With the input of customer wants and needs, the trio developed a system that would not only meet regulatory requirements, but also become an industry standard.
In 2004, Profire launched its first burner management system, the PF1100. Since that point and as regulations continue to change, Profire’s commitment remains fixed on providing innovative solutions that help customers increase safety in the oilfield, improve profit margins, and enhance compliance with regulatory bodies.
Led by our determined executive team, Profire ranks among the fastest-growing companies in North America and operates out of seven offices in the United States and Canada.
