About Lion

We know first responders.

LION is the world’s largest supplier of firefighter protective clothing. We have always been on the cutting edge of developing the most innovative, safe personal protective clothing for all first responders. Through dedicated research and development efforts, we’ve brought some of the most significant protective clothing innovations to market — and we continue to work each day to find new solutions to our customers’ challenges.

We’ve got your back.

We’re not here to blather on about ourselves. What matters is you, your safety and the resources we’ve dedicated to keeping you safe since 1898.

What you need to know is this — we’re here to design, produce and distribute the best first responder gear in the world. And we do just that.

We don’t just sell gear. We partner with firefighters, emergency responders, law enforcement and military personnel around the world — gathering their input, having them test our equipment and utilizing their on-the-job challenges as inspiration for our research and design.

We’re not cookie-cutter. And neither are you. That’s why we customize what and how we deliver based on who’s on the receiving end.

We won’t disappear. Our family has run this business for over a century — we’re not going anywhere. So you’re not left alone to puzzle out new gear solutions for your team, or even manage the details of gear care and cleaning — we do it all.

We do our job, so you can do yours — safely.
