MATTHEWS, N.C.  Conbraco Industries Inc. introduces the most recent addition to its Apollo brand:  Apollo Fire Protection System Solutions (FPSS). The fire protection fittings were previously sold through Elkhart Products Corp.  Both Conbraco Industries Inc. and Elkhart Products Corp. are Aalberts Industries companies.

This rebranding strategy will capitalize on the well recognized Apollo brand, adding to its wide range of UL/FM approved products.  Currently, Apollo offers backflow prevention products, pressure reducing valves and pressure relief valves. Combining all these products under the Apollo FPSS brand will increase the service levels of all fire protection products to the industry, providing quality products, exceptional sales support and on-time delivery customers have come to expect.

At the heart of the Apollo Fire Protection System Solutions are the Xpress galvanized and stainless steel piping systems. The Xpress fittings are a labor saving, high quality addition to traditional threaded pipe and fittings. These press fittings are ideal for both new construction and retrofit projects such as hospitals, hotels, schools, food and beverage facilities, or any other buildings with complex fire sprinkler layouts.

Conbraco Industries Inc. was created when two Detroit-based manufacturers of brass valves and fittings merged in 1928, forming Consolidated Brass Company.  In 2005, the company brought all of its products together under the Apollo Valves brand.  Over 80 years later, Conbraco is an American success story that’s still being written.
