The patented high-pressure water mist system is designed to rapidly reduce heat from fires through directly attacking the fire triangle.

Kent’s extensive experience running manufacturing and sales organizations  will certainly benefit our dealers and customers,”said Joe Mirabile, president of USSC Group. 

In his new role, Tyler will lead sales and marketing, oversee business development, and direct the execution of the company's strategic growth plan for Fogmaker throughout North America. Tyler will report directly to Mirabile, and serve on the executive leadership team for the company.

Tyler has more than 20 years of experience in the transportation industry having served in executive leadership roles within REV Group Inc. (formerly Allied Specialty Vehicles and Collins Industries), a global manufacturer of specialty vehicles. Most recently, Tyler served as president of the bus & mobility group where he led a manufacturing organization with five facilities nationwide and an industry leading North American sales and distribution network focused on school, mobility and commerical bus markets.
