Advanced Technologies was founded in 1996 by Stefano (Steve) Napolitano, a career firefighter with over 26 years of experience in the emergency service field, when he saw a need for a regional fire equipment distributor to provide high quality goods at fair market prices. Since our inception, we’ve continued to grow and expand our product and service offerings. In 2011, after serving the local community for over 16 years, Advanced Technologies was purchased by Herkimer Industries—a company that has provided innovative products and services since 1973, including LED lighting; first responder safety equipment; law enforcement apparel and uniforms; convenience products; industrial and contract sewing, packaging and assembly; and fulfillment of state and federal contracts. Steve continues to serve as a consultant, assisting in our everyday operations.
Both Advanced Technologies and Herkimer Industries are divisions of the Herkimer ARC, a nonprofit agency providing vital and meaningful services for individuals with disabilities and others in need of services in the community. Herkimer ARC’s mission is to enable people to achieve their full potential and to live enriched lives.
