Our Story

Telgian’s roots as a consulting and engineering firm began in 1985 when the company first began as Tomes and Associates. Later the company would be renamed TVA Fire and Life Safety, led by one of the original founders and former fire marshal of San Diego, Bill Tomes. In 2007, The Telgian brand was officially formed when TVA Fire and Life Safety merged with Fire Materials Group, and integrated operations.

Both companies had achieved notable levels of growth, providing critical fire protection and life safety services to large scale companies in the United States and abroad. At the time, Fire Materials Group had vast expertise in the fire protection construction and maintenance area. TVA Fire and Life Safety specialized in fire protection engineering and design, and grew to receive international recognition as the market leader in developing applications for emerging fire protection technologies. It became apparent that the two companies would benefit by centralizing governance, corporate services, information technology and leadership.

Through the years, we have driven to continually improve processes, both internally and externally, and to create the most innovative, effective solutions achievable.  As a rapidly growing firm with experts in our field, we partner with our clients to develop the best fire protection life safety, and security programs to offer end-to-end services and deliver comprehensive results. This ensures our clients have intelligent solutions that keep them safe and compliant in a cost-effective manner.

Telgian’s corporate headquarters is located in Phoenix, Arizona with offices across the United States.
