Saf-T-Gard® International announced today that the company has closed on the acquisition of certain assets and the continuing business of Dunn Safety Products. Dunn is a family-owned, full-line distributor of industrial safety products founded in 1939 and based in Chicago, IL. Saf-T-Gard will now proudly serve Dunn customers from its 80,000 square-foot Northbrook, IL facility.
“Dunn Safety Products is a natural fit with Saf-T-Gard,” said Richard Rivkin, Saf-T-Gard International President and CEO. “Both companies are multi-generational, family-owned and operated businesses celebrating more than 70 years of dedication to quality, value and service excellence. By acquiring the Dunn business we can protect even more workers. We stand ready to do business the way the customer wants to do business, offering convenient telephone, fax, EDI and online ordering capabilities from a multi-million dollar inventory of thousands of products backed by a superior, experienced customer support and sales team.”
