Rawhide Fire Hose
Fire Protection Products Since 1976
Founded by W. W. “Budd” Maddock, Rawhide Fire Hose has made supplying quality, durable fire protection products its specialty since 1976. Budd saw a need to offer complete fire hose assemblies, adapters, fire hose nozzles, Indian back pack pumps, valves and tools, in a timely fashion, and to this day we still make shipping a priority with same-day order processing. Rawhide Fire Hose maintains 4 warehouse locations that provide customer order deliveries within 1 or 2 days. In October 2014, we moved to a new, larger 20,000 square foot facility. This serves as a central order call making the order process an easy and quick experience. We specialize in hard to find specialty products and custom hose configurations for your specific application. While factory lead times for fire protection equipment can be weeks, and often months, our large inventory lets us ship your order of fire protection products the same day as received.
Rawhide Fire hose was named after some of the original fire hose that was made from leather tubing, which was tough, yet, flexible. This evolved from the days of “bucket brigades” that used horse-watering buckets, made from leather. Our fire protection nozzles and hoses are still made tough today, reflecting the durability of our products. We’re committed to providing you with the best fire protection equipment to meet your needs and pride ourselves on same-day order processing. It’s our goal to exceed your expectations.
Rawhide Fire Hose maintains an inventory of 1.5 million dollars. Our strategic alliance with Dixon Valve / Dixon Fire expands our access to inventory, from their 13 domestic United States warehouse facilities.
Staying in business and thriving for over 40 years requires diligent attention to detail and continuous improvement initiatives that aligns our mission statement with customer expectations. It is a dynamic process that is ever changing.
