Medina safety company set to expand

June 16, 2018 by  

Fire-Dex, which manufactures protective gear for first responders, is expanding its Medina headquarters, and is inviting everyone to a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate. This is the company’s 35th year in business.

Dennis Hanwell, Medina’s mayor, and Kimberly Marshall, the city’s economic development director, plan to be on hand for the opening, which includes a community lunch and guided tours of the new facility. This year is Medina’s bicentennial, and Fire-Dex is helping mark the occasion by building its new addition, and bringing in about 30 new jobs over the next three years. The expansion symbolizes the company’s continued commitment to operating in a sustainable manner, as well as making certain that paramedics and firefighters throughout the country are protected by high-quality gear.

Fire-Dex’s president, Steve Allison, said by expanding the facility, the company can provide its customers with even better service. Construction on the expansion started in October 2017, and includes a dining hall, office spaces, a bigger shop floor, an enlarged warehouse, two additional bays for trucks, and a training facility. The new addition comprises 29,000 square feet.

Fire-Dex will open its new facility on Tuesday, June 19 at 10.00 am. The company is on South Progress Drive.

When a company makes changes like this, its officers might consider distributing promotional products to celebrate the achievement, and reinforce brand recognition.
