Our History

Apollo America Inc., a subsidiary of Halma plc, specializes in the design and manufacture of high-quality fire detection solutions for commercial, industrial and residential applications. Apollo has a global position in the market with offices in the UK, China, Dubai, Germany, India, and the United States.

Apollo America was established in 2011 due to synergies identified between Apollo Fire Detectors, Ltd and Air Products and Controls (AP&C), a subsidiary of Halma plc acquired in 1999.

Apollo Fire Detectors, Ltd is the largest independent manufacturer of smoke detectors in the world. Apollo detectors protect some of the most famous buildings in the world, including the Royal Albert Hall, One World Trade Center, Tower Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Staples Center, and all the royal households of the Queen of England.

AP&C was founded in 1982 as a distributor for dampers and louvers used in HVAC systems. Over the course of the next decade, the business was expanded to manufacturing duct smoke detectors and multi-voltage control relays.

Halma is a FTSE top 100 listed plc, with over 45 subsidiaries worldwide; all engaged in growing a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day.
