About Us

In 1986, brothers Dwight and James Bateman founded Southeast Fire Protection (SEFP) to better serve the fire protection needs of building owners and contractors in the Greater Houston area. Since then, SEFP has grown substantially, and is an active member of the Texas business community. The Bateman family legacy continues with the next generation, consisting of Dwight E. (Chip) Bateman, Jr, brother in-law John D. Gartrell, J. Craig Bateman, and Eric Bateman now managing the company.
