Excerpt from 1967 brochure:
We are an organization of SPECIALISTS, making intelligent recommendations of each customer’s needs, based on careful and skillful study of the situation.
We have well-equipped, well-trained field crews and the South’s most completely equipped shop for the correct maintenance, inspection and repair of fire protection equipment.
In addition, our engineers and those of our suppliers are also available at your disposal to solve any problem, to assist with building plans, or to provide any information you may need.
We regard every sale as an obligation to fill the customer’s real needs, and not simply to fill an order… we consider every Service Contract as a sacred trust.

Herbert S. Hiller Founds Fire Protection Equipment Co., Inc.
in 1919 New Orleans
Even before the days of the Great Depression, losses from fires were totaling in the millions of dollars in New Orleans. In 1919, the citizens of New Orleans watched as the Old French Opera House on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter was burned to the ground. That same year Herbert S. Hiller established the Fire Protection Equipment Company in downtown New Orleans. The company worked to give outstanding service to its commercial, shipyard, and naval customers throughout the rest of the 20th century. Striving to be excellent in customer service is a major reason why the business, now known as The Hiller Companies, is still protecting lives and property today.
