The company roots of KIMTEK CORPORATION stem from us “walking the walk” as a majority of our staff are currently or have been involved with volunteer firefighting and EMS in our community.
Founded in 1984 as a research and development company dedicated to advances in life safety technology in the fire sciences KIMTEK CORPORATION founder and President, Kimball Johnson is the holder of several U.S. Patents covering life safety fire sprinklers for commercial and residential buildings and physical fitness exercise equipment.
KIMTEK® is located in northern Vermont and continues its 32-year mission of production of a number of items as well as continued research and development.
Mr. Johnson has been a volunteer EMT with 12 years of serving on two ambulance services and a volunteer firefighter for 9 years serving the rural most portions of northern Vermont. In 2001, Mr. Johnson founded Westmore Fire-Rescue in his small community. In under five years, and as Fire Chief Mr. Johnson, he saw his fire department build a new fire station, grow from 1 to 16 volunteers, purchase 2 class A pumpers, a brand new pumper tanker, a command/EMS vehicle and finally a 4x4 rescue utility UTV. This was all accomplished through donations, grants and a stipend from Westmore of $12,000.
Mr. Johnson knows that many public safety agencies face financial burdens that require they buy excellent, quality equipment that will get the job done right the first time.
The MEDLITE® Transport and FIRELITE® Transport series for UTV side by sides and pickup/flatbed trucks are designed and built in Vermont. Our staff is ready and willing to help you with the purchase of your new FIRELITE® Transport.
In 2009 Kimball Johnson retired as Fire Chief of Westmore Fire-Rescue and as an EMT. As a founder and lifelong member of the department he continues to serve his community.
KIMTEK expanded into a second facility on May 1, 2015 located at 326 Industrial Park Lane in Orleans VT. The amount of manufacturing space is now triple from what was the original facility in Westmore, VT. R&D capabilities have also increased along with additional engineering, sales and administration offices.
“Thank you to Kimtek Corporation for providing such an amazing product to the fire service. The quality and professionalism of your company are second to none.”
