Fire-Dex, has been selected as a Cascade Capital Corporation Business Growth Award recipient.
Fire-Dex’s consistent double-digit growth over the past five years has qualified the company for selection, as well as actual employee expansion.
The Cascade Capital Corporation Business Growth Award requires that a company increase its sales by 100 percent or $5 million, or increases total employment by 50 percent or 25 actual employees in the most current completed five-year period.
Fire-Dex is celebrating another record year in 2006, due largely to exceptional dealers and staff as well as the implementation of lean manufacturing principles, according to Fire-Dex.
The addition of a textile laboratory and the expansion of marketing and sales efforts and staff, have all played a part in Fire-Dex’s achievements, according to the company. The release of Fire-Dex’s dual-certified National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) compliant urban search and rescue (USAR) gear has also played a role.
Located in Medina, Ohio, Fire-Dex is a protective fire fighting clothing and emergency response apparel manufacturer.
The company manufactures NFPA compliant structural and proximity turnout gear and two models of NFPA compliant Para-Dex EMS gear. It also manufactures NFPA compliant hoods and gloves.
