A sincere thank you to Fire-Dex for donating 108 new firefighter helmets to The Douglas Mendel Cambodian Relief Fund to allow the firefighters in Cambodia to do their jobs in a safer and more proud manner.

Fire-Dex® is proud of our service and the quality we put into our products. Fire-Dex®, LLC has been in business since 1983, initially producing welding gloves. The company entered the fire service market with our fire fighter gloves in 1984, knit hoods in 1985 and gear bags and suspenders in 1986. Fire-Dex® started manufacturing fire fighting clothing, proximity clothing and EMS clothing in 1988: structural fire fighting gear now represents our largest product line. In 2001, we expanded our product line to include Wildland fire fighting clothing, and in 2003, added USAR (search & rescue apparel).

Fire-Dex®, LLC  built new corporate headquarters in Medina, OH, in July of 1997 and is one of the largest fire fighter clothing manufacturers in North America. Fire-Dex® delivered a 19,000-piece order for jackets, the largest order to date in the world, and we welcome the opportunity to surpass this record. The company is currently positioned to double its capacity again in our current facility.

Fire-Dex® was awarded the ISO 9001 registration in November 2000 and upgraded to the 2000 edition in December 2001. Fire-Dex® is the first in the industry to make the upgrade to the 2000 edition.
