ABOUT US

The owners of Jireh International, Jim and Tootie Owens, have been in the safety business since the late 70's. In September of 1981 they founded Owens Safety Supply, Inc., in Richmond, VA., later that fall they purchased Southern Safety Services in Fredericksburg, VA. By 1983 they had expanded to Chesapeake, VA where they founded Obbco Safety.

In the mid 80's the Owens felt the call of the Lord for a new beginning. In 1985 they sold their interests in Southern Safety Services and Obbco Safety. In 1987 they shut down Owens Safety and opened Jireh International Inc., N.A. Owens Safety had gone through some major financial setbacks due to several large customers filing for bankruptcy, however the Owens never considered bankruptcy relief from their financial difficulties.

The Lord guided them into developing Jireh International and provided the way even when there was no capital to start over. The Lord supernaturally provided several large orders in the beginning months that provided the "start-up" capital for this new adventure.

Also by His direction the Owens did not seek bankruptcy relief from the debt of Owens Safety but personally paid off every vendor and bank all that was owed by Owens Safety Supply Inc.

Jireh International Inc., N.A. is a strong, successful supply company and a true testimony to the provision of the Lord Jesus Christ and His faithfulness to those that follow Him. In Hebrew the word Jireh means: God our provider, and since inception, Jireh International has helped to support missionaries, churches and relief missions both locally and around the world.

Jireh International's success is due to God's blessing resulting from the faithful following of the directions of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is to be the best supply house possible and to fulfill God's will for our lives and help our employees and others to answer His call upon their lives.
