In response to the immediate needs of the Spanish market, the company QUÍMICA 21, S.L. was formed in 1990 for the sole purpose of manufacturing class ABC, BC, and D powder extinguishers. Soon interest was shown by foreign markets, which currently constitute a high percentage of the firm’s business.

From the beginning, the entire production process has taken place in large facilities that guarantee the high quality of the products manufactured, thus offering all its customers an unbeatable service.

Constant research, backed by state-of-the art technologies, has enabled the development of products adapted to the requirements of a continuously evolving market. The production units are fully automated and respectful towards the environment, providing a significant production capacity while ensuring high-quality, safety and expansion thus placing QUÍMICA 21 among the leading manufacturers of powder extinguishers worldwide.


Consolidate the company as part of the benchmark business group in the Spanish fire-fighting market. Furthermore, significant investments were made in facilities and the company began its regional expansion to other provinces in Spain.
Once consolidated as a benchmark in the regional fire-fighting sector, QUIMICA 21 underwent a major revolution at all levels.
New policies were implemented with a view to territorial expansion and business diversification. The commissioning of the second production plant, growing sales in a number of countries, and the development of the QFIRE product range are some of the most important events that took place.
