Phenix Technology

by Marcus

Phenix Technology was founded in 1972 by veteran firefighters Ronny Coleman, a former Chief of the San Clemente Fire Dept., and Ray Russell, a former Assistant Chief of the California State Fire Training Division. Phenix Technology was started with the goal of making safe helmets that had good balance, longevity, were light weight, comfortable, ergonomic, and could be used for all emergencies across various types of fire and emergency services.
Now operating for nearly four decades, Phenix Technology has accumulated a wealth of design knowledge and is a recognized manufacturer and seller of high quality professional fire helmets built to NFPA industry standards. Phenix Technology’s fire helmets are used by thousands of firefighters in the United States and worldwide.
Today Phenix Technology operates with a mission of producing quality products while staying committed to total customer satisfaction. All levels of the organization are involved in the process of meeting or exceeding customer requirements.
Staying true to their history, the company continues to work towards continual improvements in helmet design while staying attentive to tradition and workmanship. In addition to its offerings in the fire fighting helmet arena, the company has also been expanding its product line to include various helmet accessories.
Phenix Technology is an ISO certified company and operates out of its facility located in Riverside, California.
“Phenix Technology Inc. is committed to total customer satisfaction in producing quality products. All levels of the organization are involved in the process of meeting or exceeding customer requirements.”
In 1968, through a mutual love for collecting antique fire helmets from all parts of the world, two young firefighters, Ronny Coleman and Ray Russell, began a life long friendship. Their joint hobby for collecting fire helmets soon became inspiration to improve upon the American fire helmets of that time.
Their objective was to make safe helmets that incorporated: balance, longevity, light weight, comfort, ergonomics, and could be used for all emergencies. In an era when firefighters rode on the sides and tailboards of the fire engines the design also needed to be aerodynamic, a feature that was often overlooked. The helmet had to look and perform as well or better than anything that had previously been produced. They needed to build fire helmets that met the demands of forestry, urban or metropolitan fire service and would stand up to the most rigorous conditions.
After much discussion, with an emphasis on design, both men gathered the necessary funds to purchase an injection molding tool. Shortly thereafter, in 1972, they established Phenix Technology Inc.
