The corporate site provides general information about West Chester Protective Gear including product line overviews, careers, events, and news. From the corporate site, visitors can quickly jump to the appropriate division site.

The Industrial site / is aimed at safety distributors and end users and provides product information to aid in selection of personal protection equipment products.
