Frustrated that the existing fire training equipment on the market could not meet the real training needs at his fire brigade in Baarle-Nassau, Jac Haagen decided in 1986 to build his own smoke generators. What started out as a one-off project has grown into an industry-leading enterprise specialising in world-class products for fire and safety training: HAAGEN.
A unique aspect of HAAGEN is its extensive internal Research & Development department, where multi-disciplinary specialists work on innovative applications of new fire and safety technology.
Products are carefully vetted on the basis of rigorous field tests and prototype designs, and improvements are continuously refined in the areas of realism, safety and ease of use. HAAGEN is proud that its quality management systems satisfy ISO-9001:2008 standards.
