Here is a short overview of the history of Hydrofire and Hydro Operations.

Mr. Alford began his work in the area of textile-based industrial fire protection in 1975.  He worked with WestPoint Pepperell (Stevens) Service Center until they closed their doors in 1994.  That same year, Hydro Operations, Inc. was formed.  This company’s primary functions were in underground utilities, industrial water, and wastewater systems.  A few years later, in March of 2001, Hydrofire was formed as a sister company. This opened the door to a broader range of specialty services that included fire protection sprinkler systems and more.  Furthermore, Hydrofire, LLC is a female-owned enterprise with the owner being Carolyn Alford.

While Mrs. Alford handles the business/accounting side of the companies, Mr. Alford runs the day-to-day operations.  Together they have maintained successful operations and provided jobs for the local community.  Hydrofire has completed many, many full designs and installations for commercial, residential and industrial applications.  They continue to grow and credit progress to repeat customers and new construction opportunities.

Hydrofire and Hydro Operations are based in West Georgia, in the city of West Point. West Point is located on the state line between Alabama and Georgia.  The service area currently includes the states of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.
