Service is the Heart of Our Company

Susquehanna Fire Equipment Company (SFEC) was founded in 1951 by Max L. Foust, Sr. Mr. Foust started the business in his home, using his garage as a base for the fire extinguisher service business. The garage was later expanded to include a fully functional hydrostatic testing and recharge facility for all types of fire extinguishers. As our products and services became more widely known, and with requests from local fire departments, Susquehanna Fire Equipment Company expanded its facilities and ventured into the sales of firefighting equipment and apparel for fire departments. In 1981, Susquehanna Fire Equipment Company moved to its current location at 2122 Main Street in Dewart, PA.

In January of 1984, SFEC was incorporated and ownership transferred to his children, Max L. Foust, Keith D. Foust and Linda (Foust) Confer. Max L. Foust and Linda (Foust) Confer are currently enjoying their families and well-deserved retirement. Keith D. Foust is now serving as President, and his son Seth A. Foust is serving as Vice President, making this a 3rd generation family owned company. Susquehanna Fire Equipment Company currently employs approximately 35 associates, many with over 20 years of service.

In 2016, we launched our new and updated website at It offers detailed information regarding the products and services that our company offers.
