National Safety Apparel, Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday announced it had expanded its USA-based safety and military clothing brands with the acquisition of Chicago-based leather glove manufacturer Kunz Glove and Virginia Beach-based military gear manufacturer Wild Things.
Founded in 1900, Kunz Glove supplies gloves to electrical utilities, among other industrial customers, making the acquisition a natural extension of NSA’s existing product lines.
Wild Things began in 1981 as a manufacturer of lightweight, superior gear for elite mountaineers and grew its offerings to include gear and apparel for U.S. Special Forces. The company has a manufacturing facility in Gorham, New Hampshire.
“We’re committed to providing workers in the field and military personnel in the battlefield with the gear they need, while growing our manufacturing footprint in the USA,” said National Safety Apparel President and CEO Chuck Grossman. “Both Wild Things and Kunz Glove align with NSA’s mission to provide high quality, innovative products, and expand our offering to our customers.”
