Fire Lion's Story

Located in Vancouver, Washington USA, Fire Lion has become the premier global foam pump manufacturer.

Looking for a rewarding career that offered independence and daily challenges, the idea of Fire Lion started in 1988 with discussions during meals at Tom Resers’, Fire Lion Global’s Founder, kitchen table.  Thirty years later, Tom got what he wanted and so much more. His small start-up evolved into the leading foam pump manufacturer that protects buildings and equipment from severe fire damage for major companies worldwide.

We are grateful for our customers – thank you!

Fire Lion's History

Fire Lion’s director, Tom Reser, purchased Edwards Manufacturing, the manufacturer of the “Edwards Foam Pump” in 1988. Tom grew sales for Edwards up to the point of selling to Pentair in 2004. His next project began in 2009 working with Chemguard, a leader in fire suppression systems and chemicals, to get their foam pumps UL listed and approved – a big and complex undertaking.

During those years, Tom envisioned a series of foam pumps that were designed specifically for foam concentrate and that were easily repaired in the field. In 2009, he launched his new venture with the help of engineering students from nearby Washington State University. Together, they created the ideal foam pump design – simple, easily repaired and robust – a design that allows them to offer the most extended foam pump warranty on the market.

Fire Lion Global later achieved UL listing, FM approval and ISO certification for the unique foam pump design.

Hard work has paid off, and the business is rapidly growing. Tom has added employees, purchased new equipment and is currently planning for a larger facility.
