HOCHIKI Corporation, a world leader in fire protection equipment, was founded in Japan in 1918. Since then, eighteen subsidiaries have been formed around the world, including manufacturing locations in Japan, the UK, and at Hochiki America Corporation in the United States.

Hochiki America has been manufacturing in Southern California since 1972 and is very proud of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Buena Park, California. For over 45 years, Hochiki America has been a supplier of quality smoke detectors to the fire alarm industry. Many of their customers are well-recognized companies such as Simplex (over 20 years), Silent Knight (over 20 years), Radionics, Bosch, Potter, Napco, and Fike. These longstanding relationships are no coincidence - they are due to the fact that Hochiki offers the highest in quality workmanship at competitive pricing. Quality is “built in” using only the finest in raw materials and the most advanced automated testing and manufacturing equipment available anywhere.

Hochiki America’s internal operating procedures are per ISO 9001, the highest and most recognized standard in the industry. And as required for the United States and other international markets, their products are listed and approved by recognized agencies such as Underwriters Laboratories and Factory Mutual.

Hochiki created a fire suppression division in 2013 and has experienced tremendous success with their condensed aerosol fire suppression systems, along with their high-sensitivity air-sampling smoke detection systems. Hochiki is constantly moving ahead and
looking to the future; for you and your customers.
