Robert Sean Mason
Growing up in Tampa, Florida, I remember hearing stories about the
fire fighters and their exciting and dangerous work. My great grandfather,
Thomas, was a local fire fighter. He served 31 years with the Tampa
Fire Department retiring in 1956.
My grandfather, Joe Mason, was also a fire fighter and earned the
rank of Captain at Fire Station Number 7 before retiring in 1966.
My family has been associated with the fire protection industry
for several generations.
I pursued my interest in fire protection working for an automatic
fire sprinkler company in Tampa. There I learned the business from
the ground up starting in the installation field as a foreman's
helper. After a few years in the field I moved into fabrication
starting out as a fabricator of fire sprinkler systems and moving
on to the assistant shop foreman. As the company grew, new positions
were offered to me. Once licensed, I moved on to fire sprinkler
system inspector. My interest moved me to the engineering side of
the industry. While in the office setting, I learned the administrative
aspects of business, rounding out my knowledge of the industry.
New Millennium Fire Sprinklers, Inc. was established by William
(Eddie) Lee and I utilizing our knowledge and 40 years combined
experience to pursue our goal of business ownership.
In the beginning we took on smaller projects and we have grown
steadily ever since. We now have contracts with state and local
government agencies, hospitals, and national contractors as well
as local businesses, churches and contractors.
Being a business owner I understand the need for quality service.
As a supplier I strive to provide the best service possible. As
a customer I expect the same level of service from my suppliers.
