About Us

Since 1989, Industrial Safety, Inc. has been providing high quality products and top notch service. We are a family-owned and operated business with deep ties to Wisconsin’s fire departments. We are very proud of the team we have built at our company. From our office staff, to our sales team, to our service technicians, we surround ourselves with the best, because you deserve the best.

Our company was started by Mike Jarchow in a tiny basement office building and has since grown to service fire departments, EMS, industry, utilities and municipalities across Wisconsin and Eastern Minnesota.

After owning and operating the business for nearly 30 years, we recently transitioned the business to the second generation. Now operated by Adam Jarchow, a volunteer firefighter, we are committed to providing the best products and the best service at competitive prices.

We believe volunteer firefighters represent the best amongst us. Every single day volunteer firefighters protect their friends and neighbors. Our business is dedicated to protecting the men and women who protect us. We would be honored to have the opportunity to serve you and your fire department.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
