AMBOY – Dinges Fire Co., a family-owned fire equipment and apparatus distribution business based in the Lee County village of about 2,500 in Amboy, has expanded its reach, bringing the total to 10 Midwestern states that the 22-year-old company serves.
Dinges now represents LION Protective Clothing and Training Products and more than 200 manufacturers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska, three states newly added to its portfolio, along with Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri and, of course, Illinois.
