success story.


It's never an easy task to be a trailblazer. Going against the grain, taking the road less travelled, marching to the beat of your own drum, whatever you call it, there is no question it can be a challenge. Being an industry disrupter takes expertise in your field, a strong message, and, perhaps most importantly, courage. Lennox and Addington's FireRein checks all of these boxes, and then some. Their office is tucked away in an renovated 1800's schoolhouse in Napanee Ontario. It's a quiet street in a quiet town, but FireRein's mission is anything but that.
