Fire-Dex® LLC started in 1983 and our impeccable customer care and quality products have been the core ingredients to us becoming the premier protective gear company.  In the beginning we manufactured gloves and strategically grew in the fire service by adding product offerings such as knit hoods, gear bags, and suspenders. Fire-Dex® then began producing fire fighting bunker gear, Proximity (airport rescue firefighting gear), and EMS clothing. It wasn’t long before Fire-Dex® introduced Wildland fire fighting clothing and USAR (urban search & rescue) apparel. Fire-Dex® continued expansion in the industry with the acquisition of Chieftain®, bringing with it a long history in the fire industry, dating back to 1927.  With the exciting development of a boot line of products, Fire-Dex® became the first “Head to Toe” brand of fire fighting protective gear.  We haven’t stopped there; the revolutionary design our new FX-R® turn out gear delivers fatigue-reducing comfort, and therefore safety, like no other garment in the industry.

Fire-Dex®, headquartered in Medina, OH (just outside of Cleveland) was the first manufacture in the industry to be awarded the ISO 9001 -2000 edition and our robust quality system is currently certified to the ISO 9001-2008 edition.  Our innovative manufacturing processes allow us to be nimble and flexible while providing the highest standards of quality.  In addition, we can accommodate the needs of the largest departments. In fact, Fire-Dex® was the supplier of choice to deliver a 19,000-piece jacket order; the world’s single largest order.

Whether your needs are for a simple hood or a large custom-configured order, Fire-Dex® is thrilled to give you our best and support  your efforts in protecting our first responders.



To be the premier protective gear company, known for our outstanding service to customers.

By establishing the best team of employees, and constantly challenging ourselves to stretch, we will earn the loyalty of our partners and customers to fuel extraordinary growth and ensure mutual success.
