About Us

Who We Are

Established in June 1993, M&L Supply began as a single man-on-a-mission company committed to increasing the safety of firefighters and those they rescue by providing them with quality equipment, training, and service to ensure they had access to the best tools available. Since then, we have grown to include an Ontario-wide team of sales and representatives, service technicians and a full-time head office staff, all committed to a common goal of providing the absolute best to firefighters across Ontario.

We believe that only the best can provide the best, so our sales team is staffed exclusively by experienced firefighters. After all, nobody else could possibly have a better idea of how to provide value to firefighters than firefighters themselves. Fire departments can get hundreds of calls every day, and the public expects quick and competent response – nothing less than the absolute maximum a firefighter is capable of providing. Firefighters expect the same of their equipment. When fire departments call M&L Supply, Fire & Safety, they know they can count on fellow firefighters who are ready to utilize their own personal knowledge and experience in order to provide the best for every customer.

M&L Supply Fire and Safety believes that quality products and services must come from quality people
