Saf-T-Gard International, Inc.


Since its founding in 1936 as Latex Glove Manufacturing Company, Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. has been supplying personal protective equipment to keep workers safe on the job.

When OSHA was established in the early 1970s, Latex Glove began to supplement its line of hand protection with industrial safety products including protective eyewear, respirators, safety caps, protective clothing and footwear and first aid kits and supplies. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Latex Glove began to search for global suppliers that could provide better value through lower-cost products without sacrificing the product quality expected from Latex Glove Company. As such, the company later changed its name from Latex Glove Company to Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. to better convey the breadth and depth of the safety products offered.

Saf-T-Gard International, Inc.

In the early 1980s, the Voltgard® project was launched as a small test lab with the mission to develop the electrical testing and utility industry business by providing the testing of rubber insulating products to complement the sales of new products. Saf-T-Gard’s Voltgard Test Lab has grown to be the largest, independent, NAIL4PET-accredited test lab for rubber insulating products in the United States and offers complete retesting and certification of rubber gloves, sleeves, blankets, line hose, covers, dielectric footwear, jumper cables, grounding sets, plastic guards, hot sticks, matting, hoods and hand tools – all to applicable standards. Moreover, the Voltgard Test Lab developed the Original Rubber Goods Change-Out Program® – the industry’s first managed rubber goods change-out program designed to minimize out-of-service time and save money by offering customers complete solutions from start to finish. No other test lab offers the Voltgard level of service.
