Fire-Dex, located in Medina, Ohio, is a leading manufacturer of head-to-toe protection for 1st responders. Fire-Dex was formed after A Best Products Co. purchased Morgan Protection Apparel in Rome, GA in 1983; manufacturing welding and firefighting gloves with good dexterity, the name "Fire-Dex" was an obvious choice. Fire-Dex strategically grew by adding more accessory items such as fire hoods and suspenders and then began manufacturing structural turnout gear in 1987. Expansion continued in the following years, adding ParaDex EMS and USAR Gear, and then in September of 2008 Fire-Dex acquired the Chieftain brand, bringing with it a long history in the fire industry, dating back to 1927. Fire-Dex entered the footwear market in 2010 when they launched their first structural firefighting boot, the FDXL-100 Red Leather Boot. Recognizing the health benefits of wearing lighter gear when structural turnouts aren't necessary, Fire-Dex proudly acquired TECGEN PPE in September of 2015 as its latest addition to the Fire-Dex family of brands.
Fire-Dex's commitment to customer satisfaction, production excellence and product innovations has paved the path for continued rapid growth and the ability to consistently develop and acquire new life-saving technologies in the fire protection market.
