WATERAX has a long, proud and exciting history of moving water around the world. WATERAX originated as Watson Jack & Company, which was founded 125 years ago in 1898 by Montreal, Quebec native John Colquhoun Watson Jack. Today, WATERAX represents North America’s leading producer of wildland firefighting equipment, with an offering that includes its flagship product, the MARK-3® pump. Between the 1980s and 2010s the company continued to transform, operating under different banners until it was incorporated into WATERAX in 2014. Based in Montreal, Quebec, today the company exports wildland firefighting equipment to over 50 countries around the world.
