With our new website, our goal is to take that mind set to the next level of excellence. The future of safety in the work place and at the home is up to us, and that is what Boss stands for.” Leslie Peterson, Vice President of Industrial Sales. Also, users who frequent Boss’ social media sites will also have the opportunity to participate in giveaways as well as provide feedback and share information.

A one-by-one

About Boss Manufacturing Company
Since 1893, industrial workers, retailers, hobbyists and distributors have trusted Boss Manufacturing Company to deliver the safety wear and support they need for every situation. In the1890’s, in the small rural town of Kewanee, Illinois; a farmer, frustrated by the challenges of husking corn, combined a leather strap and a metal hook to create the Perkins Boss Husker. This simple invention led to the establishment of the Perkins Husker Company, which became Boss Manufacturing Company in 1893. Boss built its reputation by responding to the needs of local farmers, replacing their cloth work mittens with high-quality work gloves. Boss Gloves have been shipped all over the world. They even went to the South Pole with Admiral Byrd, but we haven’t forgotten our roots, even after 120 years of growth. Boss Manufacturing Company is still to this day headquartered in Kewanee, Illinois with distribution centers and sales teams throughout the United States and Canada.
Today, Boss continues to respond to the urgent needs of our customers. We keep up with emerging technologies so that we can continue to offer innovative glove designs for changing work environments. As the oldest glove company in the United States, we’ve developed the infrastructure, inventory and relationships we need to ensure our customers and partners always have everything they need to succeed, as soon as they need it.
