Heiman Fire Equipment Extends Partnership with Fire-Dex

Sioux Falls, SD - June 1, 2020 - Heiman Fire Equipment, a national distributor of first responder safety equipment, has extended their partnership with Fire-Dex, a global manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to bring an array of new health and safety-focused products to its customers.

Though Heiman has offered Fire-Dex’s Chieftain line for the past 30 years, many of the manufacturer’s turnouts, accessories and alternative PPE are new to its distribution. The company will now be able to promote exclusive offerings such as TECGEN71, a revolutionary outer shell which has contributed to the lightest turnout gear available on today’s market, and the Interceptor Package, an affordable bundle of PPE aimed to reduce firefighter heat stress and carcinogen exposure.

Heiman President, Ron Heiman welcomes this extended partnership with enthusiasm, stating: “We couldn’t be more excited to grow our long relationship with Fire-Dex and offer this new line of products that focus on the protection of our valued fire fighting and first responder customers. We know that our customers can’t protect the communities they serve if they don’t feel protected themselves and these products will help us fill that need for our trusted clients.”

With its original office still in Ashton, IA and headquarters out of a new 39,094 square foot manufacturing facility and office in Sioux Falls, SD, Heiman has specialized experience in fire truck manufacturing, refurbishment, fire equipment and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) sales.

This strengthened partnership brings two family-owned and operated companies closer together with a common goal to contribute to the betterment of firefighter wellness by engineering innovative products that cover the needs of first responders. The shared mission to drive positive change within the fire service industry will continue to be a focus for each business.

“We are very excited to have this mid-western powerhouse as a member of the Fire-Dex family, offering our head-to-toe PPE solutions to their entire customer base,” said Jim Cedar, Regional Zone Director for Fire-Dex.
