We want to begin by recognizing the incredible bravery of every first responder, healthcare provider, public health worker, and public servant worldwide who is on the front lines during this global spread of COVID-19. We will never be able to repay their efforts and sacrifices, but know that each of us here at Phenix Technology, Inc. have you in our thoughts and prayers. We also want to recognize the hard work of those in grocery, warehouse, manufacturing, and truck driving industries who are doing their part to provide for each of us.
We are a people-centric company that makes fire helmets. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we remain committed to putting the safety and well-being of our Phenix family above all else. We will be closing our facility and museum to all customers and visitors effective March 16, 2020 through the end of March. The safety and security of everyone that encompasses the Phenix family, from our people’s families to our amazing customers, is of the utmost importance, and we are taking all necessary steps to ensure their safety.
We have been monitoring the current COVID-19 situation for the last few weeks and we wanted to take a moment to share some internal actions and short term policy changes we are making in an effort to be strong corporate and community citizens.

We are ecstatic to announce that we have been chosen as a Spirit of the Entrepreneur Award finalist for Manufacturer of the Year.
