History & Dedication

Zachary Green is a former infantryman with the United States Marine Corps and was working as a volunteer firefighter when he envisioned a tremendous benefit of photoluminescent technology in firefighting. Quickly realizing the potential for photoluminescent equipment and other items for firefighters, Green founded MN8-Foxfire® in 2010. In the same year, he introduced the first Foxfire products to the world, showing the capability of the illuminating helmet band and do-it-yourself illuminating epoxy kit. Now, Green is MN8-Foxfire’s president — when he’s not off fighting fires, of course. MN8-Foxfire is located in the Cincinnati, Ohio area.
