Decon7 Systems, Inc. announces firefighter gear decontamination services with partner RedLine Gear Cleaning
DALLAS — Decon7 Systems, Inc., an industry leader in manufacturing safe and effective decontamination solutions, has partnered with RedLine Gear Cleaning to launch a mobile decontamination unit for firefighter gear in Texas and across the South Central United States.
“As the go-to decontamination agent for major government agencies and commercial decon applications in the food and beverage industry, Decon7 is perfectly poised to become the first national partner for RedLine Gear Cleaning as they expand outside of the Northeast,” says William Joe Hill, Senior Vice President of Decon7 Systems.
RedLine Gear Cleaning has developed a state-of-the-art Mobile Extraction Unit® (MEU)—a self-contained decontamination station that can clean large amounts of firefighter turnout gear directly at a fire station. Known throughout the fire service as a “high-tech mobile laundromat,” the fourth MEU deployed in the country will be operated by Decon7 Systems. The new Texas location marks the first major expansion for RedLine Gear Cleaning and its first partner-operated location.
Decon7 products have always been the preferred solutions of RedLine Gear Cleaning when decontaminating PPE and workspaces. The partnership for the MEU deployment formed organically over recent months, as Decon7 Systems is continuously looking for innovative growth opportunities and RedLine Gear Cleaning has seen a surge in demand across the country.
“When looking at our expansion strategy, it was clear that we wanted to form a partnership with Decon7 Systems because, like us, they are an industry leader and innovator. We are excited to partner with a company that shares our values and truly cares about the first responder community,” says Mike Matros, President of RedLine Gear Cleaning.
The two companies will be unveiling the new MEU at the FireHouse Expo in Columbus, Ohio on Sept. 14. After the official unveiling of the MEU, it will be held at the Decon7 Systems headquarters and deployed to provide NFPA 1851 verified cleanings to hundreds of fire departments across the Southwestern United States.
