NFSA staff sat down with Ken Brinkley, Vice President of Sales at Music City Fire Sprinkler, to discuss the company’s history, notable projects, and place within the NFSA.

Ken introduced Music City by starting with the humble beginnings of this Nashville fire sprinkler contractor; founded in 1999, the company started with just four employees: a salesperson, a CPA, a designer, and an installer.
