SureWerx Acquires Massachusetts-Based Oberon Company

Oberon designs and manufactures a wide variety of Arc Flash safety products, including suits, face shields and gloves.

Safety, tool and equipment products distributor SureWerx announced Oct. 31 its acquisition of Massachusetts-based safety equipment distributor Oberon Company. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1978, Oberon has long been an innovator of highly technical and functional safety products, and is best known for its critical-use Arc Flash safety personal protective equipment. Oberon designs and manufactures a wide variety of Arc Flash safety products, including suits, face shields and gloves, as well as other technical safety products such as gas extraction suits and heat reflective shields, according to its website.

“Adding Oberon to our growing, world-class portfolio of SureWerx brands moves us further toward our goal of becoming the global leader in Safety and Productivity,” SureWerx CEO Chris Baby said. “Oberon is unique in this space, given its position as the only “Oberon’s expertise in the most technical and demanding portion of the Arc Flash market sets them apart from their competition. We are thrilled to be adding this highly respected brand to our market-leading portfolio of best-in-class safety products.”

“Oberon has always focused on delivering innovative, performance-driven products and solutions to end users through its distribution partners,” Oberon Founder and President Jack Hirschmann said. “We are thrilled to be partnering with SureWerx, a company that holds the same values and commitment to worker safety as Oberon. Their reach into the global industrial markets and access to over 4,000 distributors across multiple channels will undoubtedly accelerate growth of the Oberon brand.”

Oberon is SureWerx’s second acquisition within the last month. The company acquired NEOS Overshoe from Rocky Brands, Inc. in early October.
