Quaker Safety has been manufacturing many types of protective clothing since 1946. However, the real roots of the company we know today were established in 1986 when the company began to focus primarily on manufacturing NFPA compliant garments for structural and proximity fire fighting. Substantial market research and development conducted throughout the years has provided Quaker Safety with insight into the requirements of the clothing from the fire department’s perspective which, in turn, has enabled Quaker Safety to design and manufacture high quality turnout gear with a quick, reliable delivery schedule. Quaker Safety’s rapid delivery, for which the company has become well known, remains unsurpassed in the fire service industry.
Quaker Safety also offers its gear customers a comprehensive range of on site cleaning and repair services, including those which are required annually by NFPA 1851. All work is performed to exacting standards by experienced personnel with the objective of maximizing the safety of the wearer and the useful life of the Quaker Safety protective clothing.
Over the last 25 years, Quaker Safety has developed a network of leading distributors and exporters throughout North America. Quaker Safety believes that service through local distribution is the best way to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction. Quaker Safety's local distributors are always available to measure, provide technical support and to ensure that each set of protective clothing is customized to meet each fire department's specific needs.
At Quaker Safety, attaining customer satisfaction by consistently meeting our customers' delivery, quality and service requirements has always been our top priority. This is achieved through the use of our ISO certified Quality Management System consisting of detailed procedures which provide the steps and processes necessary to achieve our goal of complete customer satisfaction. Quaker Safety's quality management system has been audited by external auditors and is certified as being in accordance with the latest edition of ISO 9001. The certification demonstrates the commitment of Quaker Safety to continual improvement in the areas of design, manufacture and customer service. We believe that this will give you the assurance that when you specify Quaker Safety turnout gear, you're specifying the highest quality product available.quality policy
