CEO of Weis Fire & Safety and Inventor of Draft Commander 3000®

Company founder and inventor of the Draft Commander, Gary Weis started Weis Fire & Safety in 1963. Gary has guided the company’s growth from a modestly sized fire extinguisher shop to the large, multi-division manufacturer it is today.

Gary’s love of the fire department industry began in the early 1960’s. He wanted to be a part of the never-ending challenges, innovations, and changes he saw taking place in the fire service industry. He wanted to develop products that would enhance the safety of the equipment firefighters throughout the country were using, making sure that it was ready to perform the job it was designed to do.

He loves to visit with the dedicated brotherhood of fire department staff. Listening to their ideas and challenges motivate him to always do the best job possible.
