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. AKE Safety Equipment sells their product directly to farmers and dealers within the agriculture industry.

AKE manufactures and sells premium fire extinguishers that are easy to use, less costly to maintain, and offer a long-term value that is superior to traditional dry chemical powder extinguishers. The CEO is a sales person at heart, and runs a sales-driven organization that is experiencing rapid growth (over 333 between 2010 and 2014, and another projected growth rate of 46his year). AKE is extremely well-positioned to serve a niche industry with great room for penetration. They are seeking sales talent to continue their growth trajectory.

AKE is a company passionate about what they do because their product saves lives and livelihoods. AKE’s staff is passionate and appreciative of the agriculture industry and rural America. They have a small company feel and a culture of being genuine, staying grounded, and hard work.

The most successful Sales Representatives for AKE Safety Equipment believe in and possess the American Farmer’s virtues of hard work, initiative and self-sufficiency. They believe rural America should be cherished and protected. They easily talk to Farmers, Ranchers and Agricultural workers about a product that ensures the safety of their property and families. This is a face to face product sale talking to genuine people from farmers, to company executives, to local owners.

These Sales professionals are given full training, territory guidance and strategy, and a product that is truly unmatched in the industry. Behind all of this is a company founded and run by a grass-roots sales person, turned Firefighter, turned entrepreneur. But most importantly, AKE is 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. They consider their customers to be their family.
