Ever since the invention of the fire pump, firefighters have been plagued with the difficulty of obtaining correct nozzle pressures for nozzles. Based on a simple and reliable design, Task Force Tip nozzles solve this dilemma by constantly adjusting to the varying pressures of the hoseline. First developed by Clyde McMillan, the Company is still managed with the personal touch of the McMillan family. Over the years, many additional products have evolved to make firefighting more effective and safer for firefighters around the world. As a result, the company which first started in the family basement has grown many times to meet the expanding market demands. A constant interest in staying on the leading edge of technology, the in-depth use of computerization at all levels, and strong desire for continuing innovative research and development, has made Task Force Tips one of the leading companies in the fire industry.
Task Force Tips moved into its present facility in April of 1987. We are continually adding additional computerized machines and support equipment to our plant. Additional personnel have been hired for our production and assembly divisions with an outlook for additional employees in the future. We have sales in all parts of the United States and over thirty (30) foreign countries.
At TFT employees are our most valuable asset. The company works continually with employees to make their work experience both enjoyable as well as productive. We are a pro-active employer and are constantly looking for ways to improve the workplace and quality of the work environment. The "team spirit" and goal oriented nature allow employees to meet personal goals while achieving the objectives and goals of the expanding company. Each employee's personal involvement and enthusiasm has resulted in record breaking months for Products produced and shipped. The entire TFT "family" is firmly dedicated to excellence and performance as well as unmatched customer service. With this much interest in achieving top-performance in all areas, success is sure to result.
