• POK - The 1st French Manufacturer

  • www.pok.fr
  • The first manufacturer of firefighting equipment in France, POK has shown a remarkable development.
  • Created in 1976 by Bruno Grandpierre, its current CEO, POK has currently an anual turnover of 15M including 50% of it from export in more than 90 countries. POK is a family business where the motivations are passion and conquest of new markets. The CEO bequeaths to his children a strong company recognized throughout the world, in an industry constantly evolving. Fire trucks in France, international navies, airports and oil tankers are equipped with POK products, and they protect themselves with nozzles and remote control monitors. The company's engineering department designs two new products each week while integrating new technologies to satisfy all customers. With its spectacular CNC machines and its 7000m² assembly plants, POK can make on site every device it designs.
  • The last three years, POK has innovated even more to pass through the economic crisis. POK has invested a lot in different projects such as a new motorised and very robust hose reel, a portable monitor — the Montmirail — very light and compact, power foam branchpipes with throw ranges 30% above what can be found on the market, a new automatic hand nozzle — the Legend — and many others.
  • Regarding remote controlled monitors, POK's engineering department has achieved historic sales and supply records of innovative products. These monitors allow to extinguish the fire with a remote control device a few hundred meters away, reducing human risks. At the beginning of 2014 POK took over Sadamec's activity specialised in designing, selling and in after sales service of HF remote control devices. POK is now able to offer its customers a complete solution of remote control and its after sales service.
  • POK needs all the time to manufacture with lower costs and be one step ahead of the customers expectations about smaller and lighter products. Thus, POK has again invested in leading-edge CNC machines to increase the productivity and the precision of workpieces.
  • Despite the fact POK was already certified ISO 9001, POK is now certified by the German organisation DQS UL. The certification by such a rigorous institution has only been possible thanks to the revision of its performance indicators, and POK 5S sites showing a strong will to become more efficient. ISO 14001 certification has easily been earned by the same organisation.
