Founded in 2011, FireHoseDirect is an American e-commerce company started on a shoe-string budget by firefighter Barry McConaghey and Chicago Board Options Exchange trader Dan Weber. Based in Mooresville, North Carolina, the company was founded on the forethought of the constant need of replacing fire hose in the fire industry regularly. The goal was simple: ship quickly, stock everything, and be the top provider of fire hose to the industrial, government, residential and fire sectors.
A few years later – with the concept proven – it was time to grow the product line. Expanding into adapters, fittings, and nozzles, FireHoseDirect was destined for success. After outgrowing several warehouses and office locations, the process was nearly perfected.
Today, FireHoseDirect is able to deliver over 3,000 different products to 98% of customers within two days. Over 90% of our products are kept in stock and ship the same day. Over 50 different types of municipal hose are service-tested before leaving our warehouses, ensuring performance and safety. Our primary supplier of fire hose has over three decades of manufacturing experience, leading the industry in both knowledge and quality. All of our hoses come branded from the manufacturer, stamped with the FireHoseDirect logo.
FireHoseDirect remains the largest internet sales and distribution company of fire hose in the United States.
