David Odell, President
David knows the fire protection industry inside out, having worked most of his adult life at Northeast. He started as many kids do, working in the pipe shop during school summer vacations, and advanced into the design field before beginning his apprenticeship phase in the local sprinkler fitters union in 1985. Once David completed his apprenticeship, he went on to advance his skills in a variety of systems by working in a service/diagnosis capacity for several years before taking control of the company in the 1990’s. Since then he has built a team of skilled and knowledgeable fire protection professionals who share his dedication to doing the job right every time. Whatever your need, he can help you determine the practical and serviceable fire suppression solution.
