Notifier has reached at the present time the leading position worldwide in manufacturing fire alarm control panels and their peripheral devices, access control systems and facility monitoring systems.
NOTIFIER is among the first in fire alarm industry to accept and introduce the challenge of Just-In-Time delivery and Zero defects manufacturing. The extensive manufacturing facility takes up the majority of space in the company's 252,000 square feet world headquarters building in the United States. This facility has met certification under International Organization Standards (ISO 9001) quality control program for design and production.
Notifier products are remarkably compatible each other, because they go to great lengths to ensure production specialists and design and engineering personnel are communicating to achieve product goals. One of the major reasons for Notifier's success is its steadfast commitment to Quality.
First in the industry to be approved under ISO 9001 standards in April 1993, Notifier employs professionals in research, design, engineering and production. These dedicated professionals work as a tight-knit team to ensure compliance with performance specifications. Together, they take advantage of Notifier's considerable technology and one of the fire alarm industry's most modern manufacturing facilities to create smoke and heat detectors, pull stations, speakers, bells and horns, waterflows devices, annunciators and more that are fully compatible with outstanding control panels. All of these products are manufactured using the very latest advancements, including surface-mount technology, which dramatically reduces the size of products and increases reliability.
Notifier's achievements translate into an operating philosophy that is a commitment to excellence, which ensures total customer satisfaction, highest quality, most complete product line, prompt on-time delivery and competitive pricing.
The group, a pioneer of low voltage fire detection systems and the developer of the modular concept in fire control panels, has been a leader in the fire protection industry for over 45 years. The story of the company, which has made the term "Notifier" synonymous with "fire protection", began in the 1940's. The idea of Oliver T. Joy grew from a tiny frame building in Waverly, Nebraska, in 1949 mainly installing a few Fire Alarm Systems in nursing homes and hospitals within a hundred mile radius of Lincoln. The firm then began providing protection for such industrial giants as General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Bendix Corporation and IBM. Today Notifier's services are worldwide.
Oliver Joy was ably assisted in the growth of Notifier by his wife, Dr. Margaret Joy, who became the executive Vice-President of the newly formed company, and the only woman in the fire protection industry to appear in "Who's who of American Women".
In 1956, the assets of Notifier Manufacturing Company were transferred to the newly formed Notifier Corporation. In 1959, six and a half acres of land were acquired in Lincoln, Nebraska, and a new plant and general offices totaling 12,000 square feet of additional manufacturing space was added. In 1968, when Notifier sold to Emhart Corporation, the firm occupied a building totaling 40,000 square feet. Another 20,000 square feet was added to accommodate the manufacturing of smoke detectors and the designing of microprocessor-controlled panels and integrated audio/voice evacuation systems.
In 1962, Notifier was selected to provide the fire detection system for the Seattle World's Fair, not on a basis of competitive bidding, but on a basis of excellence. On file at Notifier is a signed contract calling on the company to provide the fire protection equipment for a large New York hotel company when it builds its first hotel on the moon!
In 1987, Emhart decided to sell off its electronic division of which Notifier was a part. The company was purchased by Pittway Corporation and after a year NOTIFIER moved to new quarters in Northford, Connecticut. Pittway had earlier bought Fire-Lite Alarms and merged Notifier with Fire-Lite into a new plant with common manufacturing facilities. The Northford plant is now approximately 252,000 square feet. In addition, Notifier has five manufacturing facilities and a vivacious sales and support staff positioned in 17 offices spanning the globe.
At present, Notifier belongs to the American multinational HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL INC., whose head office is in Morris Plains, New Jersey.
HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL, born in 1999 from the merger of the two American colossus Allied Signal and Honeywell, is one of the most important groups in the world, present in 70 countries, employees more than 129,000 people and has an annual turnover of 36,8 billion dollars. The group is listed at New York, London and Chicago Stocks Exchange and is one of the 30 quotations forming the Dow Jones Index.
HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL interest goes from aerospace products to plastic industry (materials with big additional value for the nylon production), mechanical industry (turbines for diesel motors), production of vehicles' accessories like seat belts and braking systems, HVAC control and security systems.
Among the Divisions that make up HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL there is Automation & Control Solutions (ACS) which is divided into several Business Units; NOTIFIER is part of Honeywell Security & Fire (HSF) that includes all companies involved in fire detection and security products and solutions.

- price containment and
