Knox Fire Protection Inc.

Involved Leadership

History of Knox Fire

Knox Fire Protection was founded in 2010 by Shamus Knox and has been offering exceptional fire protection to Okanagan business owners and residents ever since. Back in 2005, Shamus worked for a long-standing local company called G&G Fire Protection. During his time there he worked his way up through various positions. In 2010 Shamus purchased the company and rebranded to Knox Fire Protection Inc. 

The Knox Difference

The in-house design process backed by specialized industry knowledge sets Knox Fire Protection apart from the competition. The ability to deliver efficient designs in terms of performance and cost provides clients with the utmost confidence that their fire protection system is up to code and will work when they need it most.

Knox Fire Protection prides itself on working with developers and builders to complete their projects while ensuring time and money are always used as efficiently as possible.

Meet Our Leader:
Shamus Knox

Shamus was born in Edmonton and lived there until the age of nine, when his family moved to Kelowna. Following high school, he returned to Edmonton and enrolled in NAIT. In 2003, Shamus began his work in the trade through a red seal apprentice program. After working in Edmonton for a few years and gaining valuable experience, Shamus returned to sunny Kelowna in 2005 and became a journeyman.

After working across a few trades, Shamus identified a real need for people in Sprinkler Fitting. As a very specialized trade that doesn’t cross over to other applications, he thought it was a great career opportunity – which ultimately proved true.

On a personal note, Shamus spends his time soaking up the Okanagan sunshine with his wife and two children. He enjoys the smaller city atmosphere of Kelowna and its outdoor playground that offers year-round activities.

He is willing to adapt his services to accommodate project changes along the way, understanding this is a natural part of the process.
