Global safety equipment manufacturer MSA Safety Inc. (NYSE: MSA) has pulled the curtain back on a new investor relations (IR) website – http://investors.msasafety.com – as part of a broader company initiative to drive improvements across its investor relations and outreach program.

As a comprehensive source of MSA information, the site features a number of enhancements, all contained within an easy-to-use and streamlined user interface.  Included among the site’s new features are a calendar highlighting upcoming investor-related events, a financial results section containing quarterly supporting materials, tools to facilitate historical stock performance analysis, a library of annual reports, and an interactive “how are we doing” tool that allows investors and other visitors to register comments or suggestions for site improvements.  Visitors also have the option to register for MSA email alerts, which can be customized based on individual areas of interest.

“At MSA, our focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience applies not only to our customers and channel partners, but to all who come in contact with the MSA brand, including our shareholders,” said Kenneth Krause, MSA executive director of global finance and assistant treasurer.  “Within the investor relations function, our goal is to deliver a best-in-class investor experience through proactive and transparent communications.  And our new IR site is a visible part of that focus.”

According to Mr. Krause, the new site provides easier access to a broad range of supporting materials.  “We designed the site with one key goal in mind: to ensure members of the investment community can successfully analyze our business and stay up-to-date on the latest developments at MSA,” he said.  “This launch marks an important milestone in our journey to enhance MSA’s investor relations program, and we are proud to share our new IR site with the investment community.”
