50th anniversary Euralarm

12 March 2020

Today we celebrate the day when, exactly 50 years ago, Ernst Meili founded Euralarm. Starting with 24 companies from 12 countries and two national associations for fire safety, Euralarm developed into a European association that represents today over 5,000 companies, employing 700,000 people, within the fire safety, security, extinguishing and related services industry with an estimated revenue of € 67 billion.
For almost 50 years Euralarm has been proactively contributing to standardisation processes, providing guidance in the digitalisation of our industry, raising the standards for training and qualifications to address society’s needs for safety and security and partnering with research institutes.
On this special day we’d like to thank all our partners for sharing our passion and for joining us in our journey towards a safer and more secure Europe.
