History
Reliable was founded in 1920 by Frank J. Fee, a mechanical contractor who began manufacturing sprinklers when he had trouble securing them for his own jobs. Frank J. Fee, Jr., succeeded his father as company President in 1945, and his son, Frank J. Fee III, served as President from 1976 through 2015. In July 2015, Kevin T. Fee was named President. This puts Reliable today in its third generation of Fee family leadership. As part of senior management with Frank J. Fee III are his two brothers, Kevin T. Fee, President, and Michael R. Fee, Executive Vice President. The family-run company also has many employees who have served in excess of 25 years, enhancing its team-family tradition.

Product Offerings
Reliable is a manufacturer of automatic fire sprinklers, valve and accessory products, and a major distributor of sprinkler system components. In the sprinkler area Reliable produces both of the industry's two basic types - the solder type and the frangible bulb - for virtually every type of building applications. Reliable also produces a broad range of valves including alarm, dry, deluge, preaction, and check valve that control water flow to sprinkler systems and actuate alarm signaling.

Fire Protection Industry
Reliable has always been an industry-minded company. Past President Frank J. Fee, Jr., attained many notable positions in the fire protection community, including Chairman of the National Fire Protection Association and Chairman of the National Automatic Sprinkler and Fire Control Association.

Frank J. Fee III has served on the National Fire Protection Association's International Advisory Board. He was past Chairman of the Board and Director of the National Fire Sprinkler Association and held several Board positions including Treasurer, Secretary, and Director of the National Fire Protection Association. Frank has been the recipient of NFSA's "Golden Sprinkler Award" (1998), NFPA's "Distinguished Service Award" (1998), and AFSA's "Henry S. Parmelee Award" (1990) in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the fire sprinkler industry.

Kevin T. Fee is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the National Fire Sprinkler Association and has recently completed a term as Treasurer (2008 - 2012). Kevin has been the recipient of NFSA's "Golden Sprinkler Award" (2008). He was Vice Chairman (1986 - 1990) and Chairman (1990 - 1994).

Kevin was a founding member of the International Fire Sprinkler Association and served as its first Chairman (2000 - 2003) and is presently a Board member. Kevin was also past Chairman of the American Fire Sprinkler Association's Manufacturer and Supplier Council and is a member of the National Fire Protection Association.
