Reimer has a long history as a strong advocate for height safety and the expansion of fall protection standards including serving as a board member on the International Safety Equipment Association. “Joe’s background in fall protection and drive toward true globalization makes him an ideal leader for the growth of the industry and our company,” said Anders Pettersson, Capital Safety CEO. “He joins Capital Safety on the heels of a record year, with some phenomenal opportunities ahead of us in 2011 and beyond. With Joe on our team, we will continue to strengthen our leadership position in the U.S. and Canada and increase our aggressive expansion within Latin America.”
Reimer will be based at Capital Safety’s Red Wing, Minnesota, facility and have responsibility over the business in North and South America.
