As a privately owned and operated business for almost 60 years, Oliver takes pride in being the Mid-Atlantic region’s premier fire, life safety and security expert.

Best known to the region as a fire sprinkler company, Oliver has grown to become a respected full service fire protection and security firm. For well over a decade the electronic side of the business has grown to a team of 40 providing:

  • Fire Alarm
  • Video Surveillance Systems
  • Access Control Systems

Oliver technicians are certified by the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) and provide a full range of services including engineering and CAD services, system programming, system installation, inspections, certifications and troubleshooting.

Working out of his home, Leland Oliver founded Oliver Sprinkler Company in 1957 with a staff of six. The firm prospered under Leland’s leadership, quickly gaining prominent clients throughout the Philadelphia region. Over the years, all three of Leland’s sons--Bill, Dick, and Bob--joined the business and assumed positions of leadership.

In 1975, Oliver moved to its current location in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. In 2005, Dick Oliver’s son, David S. Oliver, assumed the reigns. Representing the third generation of family, Dave became the company’s fourth president.  David states “Grounded in the ideals set forth in 1957 by my grandfather, Leland Oliver, the company’s core mission is evident: assemble, train, and nurture an exceptional team; deliver an unsurpassed level of service; and take pride in everything we do – our name is on it.”

David S. Oliver is a member of the GBCA Membership Committee.
