Talentum® was acquired in April 2013 and integrated into FFE. The history started in 1968 when the first Talentum® invention was a device that would respond to sparks in pneumatic conveying and dust extraction systems, these principles were then applied to the monitoring of flames and in 1974 the first system was installed on a power station boiler. Since then many Talentum® systems have been installed around the world protecting valuable property from the risk of fire.
In January 2015 Fire Fighting Enterprises officially became known as FFE Limited.
