AFEX, based in Raleigh, North Carolina, is a specialty manufacturer of vehicle fire suppression systems. The company was founded in 1968, initially to serve the timber harvesting industry in the southern pine forests. Later this was expanded to the waste handling industry, primarily used to address the need found at sanitary landfills.

In 1986, the business was purchased by Bonaventure Group, Inc. Shortly afterward, much of the company’s focus shifted to providing vehicle fire suppression systems to the mining market, first in the United States and then beginning in 1994 in the Latin American countries. AFEX systems are typically found on: excavators, haul trucks, power shovels, wheel loaders, bulldozers, graders, etc. Other industries served where fire is a significant hazard are steel, mass transit, pulp and paper and agriculture.

AFEX fire suppression systems carry ActivFire, FM and CE approvals.
