Our History

Founded in 2002 as a full-solutions engineering company, we served the region as Hitachi Critical Facility Protection until 2019, when Critical Facility Group was spun-off as an independent company with a focus on greater flexibility in business operations.

Today, Critical Facility Group carries on the proud tradition of creating innovative weather protection solutions based on state-of-the-art Japanese-quality engineering and our commitment to developing leading edge technologies.

Our experienced management team is assisted by a world-class panel of international R&D experts in bringing to market advanced weather-mitigation solutions and services.
