At AKE Safety Equipment, we realize you’re not just buying “The World’s BEST Fire Extinguisher” This page is intended to help you learn more about us. It all started in 1989, when a 19-year-old kid with a passion for fire safety sold his first fire extinguisher. Today, that kid, firefighter Allen Kronebusch, runs AKE Safety Equipment, the only firefighter owned, operated, and endorsed fire safety company and fire extinguisher manufacturer in the country. Another thing about us you might not know: we are an accredited member and carry the highest possible rating, an A-plus, from the Better Business Bureau. But, most importantly, we’re in business for the right reasons–to help others and to save lives. AKE has never lost its focus on the things that matter, like family, faith, and fire safety. And we consider our customers to be our family.
AKE Companies, LLC, doing business as AKE Safety Equipment, manufactures fire extinguishers. The company was founded in 1989 and is headquartered in Rochester, Minnesota.

It shows in our people
While customers come first, we at AKE understand that it’s our people who make it all happen. You’re not just buying our product, you’re buying the people behind it. So, if you call to get a replacement as part of our “no hassle, no B.S. guarantee,” you’ll get no hassles, no B.S.
We’re easy to do business with. We don’t nickel and dime our customers. You’re paying for a premium product, and you get premium people. Every single AKE team member works toward the same goal–to save property, livelihoods, and lives.
But don’t just take our word for it. Take the word of customers like Chris Dahl, a Minnesota farmer who saw up close how well STOP-FYRE works.
“I had just finished combining a field of soybeans on the home farm. As I pulled into the yard I could see my two hired men running toward the combine. One of the men had a regular fire extinguisher in his hand and the other man ran and got a STOP-FYRE unit to put out the fire. One man started spraying the regular fire extinguisher, which was making a mess and not putting out the fire. The other man arrived with STOP-FYRE. It immediately put out the fire. We definitely credit [STOP-FYRE] for putting out the fire quickly and ultimately saving the entire combine.”
The next day, when Dahl called us to get his STOP-FYRE unit refilled, he found out firsthand about our customer service.
“My sales rep was out here the same day. That’s as good as customer service gets.”
For Allen Kronebusch and our entire team at AKE, these are the types of testimonials that make our work so meaningful.
“Our customers know they can trust us with their lives and livelihoods. And we’re proud to be part of that. We treasure their trust.”
