Formet Industries is a division of Magna Structural Systems Inc. located in St. Thomas, Ontario that makes parts for automotive manufacturers.
Due to the nature of the work and the fact that they had recently had a lot of experiences where workers had received lacerations in the workplace, when their HSE Coordinator approached us, he was looking to outfit 1500 workers with reliable, highly cut-resistant gloves that would significantly lessen the number of accidents.
“We had to make some adjustments. We needed cut-level A5 Kevlar® gloves,” Carl explained.
We’re extremely happy to report that we were able to find a solution that worked well for Carl and his employees. Here’s what he had to say about his experience working with our company:
“Working with Superior easily saves me 4-5 hours per month… Superior helps out a lot. I’m always really quick to say we use Superior and we enjoy the working relationship. They are very reliable, they have a very good product with all their gloves, and they stand by their product –- any issues get fixed. I know they are looking out for our best interest and protecting our team members. They’re proactive in finding solutions for us.”
