We are relentless innovators.
We make superior products that are tougher than whatever confronts the workforces wearing and using what we make. Some call our products beautiful. We think of it as making safety stylish. Against the cliché, we work smarter and harder.

Another cliché is that companies should hire for attitude and train for skill. We disagree—we hire for both. With us you will exceed the challenges in working for a company with operations and interests worldwide. You will be given a lot of responsibilities. Your ability to handle them will bring you more responsibilities. Your work will not go unnoticed nor will it go unrewarded.

If you get us, please apply. We look forward to meeting you.
