Marmic Fire & Safety Company (MFS) is the successful expansion
of Joplin Fire Protection (JFP) which began in 1951 with Charles
and Mary Lou Teeter. After decades of practicing customer-centric
service JFP added territories in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas
with a second generation of the Teeter Family at the helm. During
their tenure, Mickey and Martha Teeter formed a second company
called Marmic to cover those areas outside of Joplin, MO Metro.
Today, the third generation is charging ahead with Marmic's growing
prominence in the Midwest and, indeed, the nation.
In its core services of fire extinguisher, sprinkler, fire
alarm, industrial fire suppression, and kitchen system fire
suppression MFS competes with the top fire protection companies in
the country. But few, if any, other companies are as holistic in
terms of safety. By installing and servicing security and access
control systems it demonstrates a well-rounded concern for the
protection of life and property. Additionally, selling personal
protection equipment such as hard hats, safety glasses, gloves,
reflective vests, and more establishes MFS as a complete, one-stop
shop for home and workplace safety equipment. This depth of
services illustrates the importance the company places on customer
safety no matter where they are or what they are doing.
