In December 2016, hot on the heels of buying Stonewood Homes, John and Michael Chow (well-known Chow Brothers) purchased fire services company AFS Total Fire Protection from the receivers. We sat down with Senior Associate Rex Wu to talk about their journey from taking over a business that was in rubbles to where they are today. “The first 6 months have been incredibly challenging for our team but with the strong capital injection, the reputation and experience of the Chow Group, we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. Our goal now is to bring the business back as a major player in the fire protection services industry” says Rex.

Rex, on behalf of the Chow Group wants to acknowledge and thank their customers, suppliers and their amazing team, as they couldn’t have achieved what they have to date without their support.

“We believe in the mantra, we don’t just talk about it, we do what we say we are going to do” says Rex Wu.
