Company Spotlight: Quaker Safety

We recently had the opportunity to meet some of the guys from Quaker Safety at the 25th Annual Pittsburgh Fire Rescue and EMS Expo in Monroeville, PA.  They were some nice guys from a pretty amazing company!

Quaker Safety has been manufacturing many types of protective clothing since 1946. However, the real roots of the company were established in 1986 when the company began to focus primarily on manufacturing NFPA compliant garments for structural and proximity fire fighting. Substantial market research and development conducted throughout the years has provided Quaker Safety with insight into the requirements of the clothing from the fire department’s perspective which, in turn, has enabled Quaker Safety to design and manufacture high quality turnout gear.  All gear is ISO 9001-2008, NFPA 1971-2007 (structural), and NFPA 1971-2007 (proximity) certified.  They also come with a quick, reliable delivery schedule. Quaker Safety’s rapid delivery, for which the company has become well known, remains unsurpassed in the fire service industry.

Over the last 25 years, Quaker Safety has developed a network of leading distributors and exporters throughout North America. Quaker Safety believes that service through local distribution is the best way to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction. Quaker Safety's local distributors are always available to measure, provide technical support and to ensure that each set of protective clothing is customized to meet each fire department's specific needs.

Quaker Safety stands behind its products. They warranty for a maximum of five years from the date of manufacture that the products listed on your Quaker Safety invoice will be free from defects in materials and workmanship when used by appropriately trained personnel following acceptable fire fighting or emergency medical operations procedures.  Quaker Safety also offers its gear customers a comprehensive range of on site cleaning and repair services, including those which are required annually by NFPA 1851. All work is performed to exacting standards by experienced personnel with the objective of maximizing the safety of the wearer and the useful life of the Quaker Safety protective clothing.

The full catalog of all of the gear they offer can be viewed on their website.  All orders are given the options of choosing the type of outer shell, thermal liner, moisture barriers, reinforcements, trim options, pant and jacket closures, pockets, suspenders, and more.  Fully knowledgeable customer service staff can easily assist you with determining what options will work best for the specific needs of your department.
