RIVERSIDE, CA. — Firefighter owned and operated firefighting equipment manufacturer celebrated 50 years in business with the grand opening of their new facility on September 1, 2022. The new facility stands as a testament to the explosive growth that the company has experienced in recent years under the leadership of Angel Sanchez, Jr., Chief Executive Officer.
“50 years ago, two fire captains wanted to create a safer firefighting helmet. They didn’t do it to make money. They did it simply because they wanted to leave the world a better place,” said Sanchez. “Today, that vision still acts as our guiding light – a vision to leave the world a better place. We are proud to manufacture entirely American made fire helmets used by thousands of emergency personnel around the world.”
Phenix Technology, Inc. was joined by over 100 guests including local firefighters, government agencies, business partners, and friends who enjoyed a presentation of awards and certificates followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony. Attendees were invited to take a tour of the facility and learn about Phenix’s lean, people-centric approach to business.
“Our goal is to develop people. When you invest in your people, they are going to be innovative, problem-solvers. That is how Phenix leaves the world a better place. We strive to develop people well beyond where they were when they joined the family,” said Angel, Sanchez, Jr., CEO when unveiling Phenix’s new mission statement; Better People. Better Products. Better World.
