Demsa is an Argentine industrial company specialized in the research and production of chemical agents to fight fires. It has been working for 30 years in tests, new technological developments and quality processes to manufacture dry chemical powders and synthetic foams to fight different types of fires.
Leader in South America, Demsa was created with the vision to manufacture highly reliable products. Along its trajectory, the company has consolidated its leadership based on strong investment in research and development and a strict quality framework in all manufacturing stages.
The prestige obtained has turned Demsa into the first provider of fire-fighting supplies in the Argentine market, going beyond its frontiers and exporting its products to the world. At the same time, its management is oriented to human resources training and continuous improvement to thus offer products which comply with the highest market requirements.
This vocation for quality is supported by the certification of all its processes and by the mounting of a standardized analysis laboratory of samples, under ISO 17025, which – due to its features- is today unique in Latin America.

Recently inaugurated -and with state-of-the-art technology- the “Center for Extinguishing Agents Standardized Tests” (CENAE) is one of the most important investments made by Demsa in the last years.
This laboratory, which is in accreditation process under ISO 17025 standards, researches and develops new products, checking compliance with the quality specifications of current products.
In a short time, the CENAE will be the first Argentine and Latin-American laboratory credited under ISO 17025, an international standard which establishes the requirements to be met by test laboratories so that their results are universally accepted.
CENAE certifications allow extinguisher manufacturers to have an international projection and make an incursion in new markets, since they guarantee compliance with the universal standards required by the Customs systems of importing countries.
