UTC rebrands its U.S. fire and security services as Chubb

April 4, 2011 -- All of UTC's fire and security services business are being rebranded under the Chubb name in the United States. The move includes the following units: Detection Logic, Fire Systems Inc. (FSI), Florida State Fire & Security (FSFS), Red Hawk, Antronnix, CalProtection, Diversified Fire Products, HFP Corporation, Lane Fire & Safety, Pratt Landry Associates, John W. Polhemus, and Vantronics Security Systems.

"The transition is more than changing our name," said Sean Flint, President of UTC Fire & Security’s services business in the Americas. "We are transforming our business and are committed to providing the highest standard of service, professionalism and quality for our customers."

UTC already has operated the Chubb brand extensively around the globe, and as part of the U.S. services business alignment, the aforementioned companies will be joined under singular branding, a change that affects the firms' web presence (www.chubbfs.com), main phone number, uniforms and vehicles.

According to UTC, these U.S. operations join a worldwide pool of almost 10,000 technicians and over 400 locations. Services from Chubb include field installation and service, testing, inspection, monitoring, and ATM services.
