Fogtec - Fire Protection


World market leader from Cologne

Our headquarters (office and production facility) have been located in Cologne’s Schanzenstraße in the Mülheim district for 25 years and we have been able to follow and help shape the exciting transformation from an industrial to a cultural location and trendy district. Where Cologne's traditional heavy industry companies used to be located, media companies, design offices and think tanks now dominate the scene. Between the event venues E-Werk and Palladium you will find urban gardening, a wellness centre and indoor bouldering - framed by the culinary scent of Keupstraße restaurants and coffee roasters... The Schanzenviertel pulsates and has grown into an attractive quarter with a very special quality of work and life.
