Ace Lightning Protection Inc. was established in 1964 by William “Ace” Zafaras. From its humble Pittsburgh beginnings to 54+ successful years later, Ace LP proudly continues as Pennsylvania’s largest Lightning Protection and Grounding firm.
Founder William “Ace” Zafaras was a WWII Veteran Sargent who had the privilege of studying Television Engineering under Dr. Lee DeForrest, the inventor of the “Tube”. William’s knowledge of technology in television and telephone industries led way to the Lightning Protection and Grounding industry and finally to the inception of Ace Lightning Protection Inc. William had many notable hobbies from building vehicles (frame and all), to flying his Champ and Cessna airplanes, to riding his many motor cycles but most importantly raising a family.
After attending the University of Pittsburgh and a decade of an extremely wide range of field experience William’s son Robert assumed Project Management status and then full Ownership by 1983. With decades of service to the Engineering community by designing Lightning Protection and Grounding Systems for every genre of construction, Robert W. Zafaras is proud to continue offering his value and integrity based expertise in the Lightning Protection and Grounding fields.
