How We Came To Be from 1988 to Today

Established in 1988 as Lyons Fire Protection, our journey has been driven by a deep commitment to exceeding client expectations and ensuring their safety. At Onyx-Fire, we don't just provide industry-leading fire protection solutions—we do it with genuine care and a dedication to your well-being.

Originally a family-owned business in Etobicoke, Ontario, Lyons Fire Protection quickly gained a reputation for meticulous Inspection Testing and Maintenance services. When the Freeman family took the helm in 2000, a new era of compassion and customer care was born. Led by Mark, Chris, and their father Don, we set out to create a fire protection service business that not only met the highest industry standards but also took exceptional care of our clients.

Your evolving needs are our compass. As we listened intently to your requirements, we expanded our capabilities in 2010, establishing dedicated teams for sprinkler and fire alarm systems. This strategic move allowed us to provide comprehensive design, installation, and retrofit solutions for fire alarm, sprinkler, and life safety equipment systems. Our aim is to ensure that every aspect of your fire protection is handled with utmost care and expertise, bringing you peace of mind.

In 2020, we embarked on a mission to expand our caring touch across Canada. By acquiring esteemed fire protection companies, we established a powerful network of resources and expertise, serving you with a national presence and local care. No matter where you are, our dedicated team is always ready to provide exceptional service and support.

Your safety and well-being are at the core of everything we do. We understand the critical importance of fire protection, and we are committed to delivering tailored solutions that address your unique needs. Our team of fire protection experts is passionate about protecting lives and property, and we treat each client like a member of our own family.
