Minimax provides varied variety of Fire Fighting Equipments to suit the needs of industrial, commercial and home environment. Minimax is an ISO 9001 company with all its products are marked by ISI. Minimax products are available throughout India through its strong distribution network.

Steelage Industries Ltd. originated as a manufacturer of equipment such as safes and lockers for the security market. It grew rapidly mainly because of outstanding quality and captive demand. It later acquired Minimax - a manufacturer of fire fighting equipment.

As a step towards providing quality security solutions Steelage Industries Ltd. in the year 1951 entered into technical collaboration with UK based Chubb Safes Group, who were acknowledged as world-wide leaders in security business safeguarding wealth in all major banks and commercial establishments.

Equity participation from Chubb Group in 1971 gave Steelage Industries Ltd. the green signal to make further forays into the Indian market. The partnership with Chubb Group also resulted in Steelage Industries Ltd. acquiring Minimax of India Ltd. ‘Minimax’ division, a highly reliable and trusted name in fire extinguishers under the brand name Minimax.

The growth of the Indian economy, in general, and growth of its banking network and industrial infrastructure in particular, helped Steelage Industries Ltd. to become an important and integral part of the security and safety-products market.

In 1975-76, a well-equipped factory for manufacture of fire-extinguishers and allied products was set up at Ambattur, near Chennai. Another new and modern industrial plant for manufacture of fire engines, trailer pumps and portable pumps was commissioned in July 1986 at Ambattur.

The growth of Indian economy saw the industrial infrastructure improve considerably leading to an increase in the need for fire-protection systems. In 1980, Fire Protection systems business was started under the brand name Minimax. Since then the Projects division undertakes projects related to installation of fire-detection, fire alarm, fire-extinguishing facilities for buildings and industrial complexes.

In March 2000, the Sweden-based Gunnebo Group acquired the ChubbSafes business. Gunnebo Group made a public offer for the remaining shares in Steelage Industries Ltd. and at the end of 2005 the name of the company was changed to Gunnebo India Ltd.

Thus Gunnebo India Ltd. became a subsidiary of the Gunnebo AB Group, Sweden and since then it is poised for greater integration and access to the latest developments in modern technologies that has provided a distinct competitive advantage to its products in the security solutions market.
