Metalworking and MROP products distributor BlackHawk Industrial — No. 30 on MDM’s 2022 Top Industrial Distributors list — announced Sept. 28 that the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma-based company has joined the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) – Hand Protection Group, a recognized leader in the development of ANSI-accredited safety equipment standards.

BlackHawk said the move will allow the company to bring more value to its industrial manufacturers and offer unique expertise and experience that will help innovate and enhance worker safety.

“We are delighted to join an organization that is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of workers around the world,” said John Mark, BlackHawk president and CEO. “Being part of a community of manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors of safety equipment and technologies aligns with BlackHawk’s commitment to our customers’ success, our supplier partners, and our teammates, no matter what.”

“We felt it was important to be at the forefront of industry consensus standards while simultaneously developing our sales teams,” added Matt Roers, BlackHawk category director of PPE. “Having a seat at the table with applicable product groups and improved access to QSSP certification will help take us to the next level to serve BlackHawk customers better as trusted safety partners.”
