Ironclad Performance Wear is a global technology leader in performance and safety hand wear. Based in Farmers Branch, Texas, Ironclad is recognized as the global industry’s “go-to-source” when addressing their toughest hand safety and performance challenges in the toughest environments. Ironclad is exceptionally well positioned to benefit from the growth in a $6.0 billion global market for technology driven safety and performance hand wear.
For more than 17 years, Ironclad has been at the forefront of developing products that provide optimum protection for workers’ hands while also making it easier for them to do their jobs. Ironclad was the first manufacturer to introduce performance work gloves to the market. When Ironclad began in 1998, workers relied on one-size-fits-all leather gloves that offered marginal protection for workers’ hands and were cumbersome with little dexterity. Through new technologies in materials, product engineering and production techniques, the company created an entirely new standard for fit and durability as well as overall performance and safety in work gloves.
Technology, Engineering and Development Leadership:
Ironclad’s forward looking development and use of new technologies in their products created a revolution in industrial hand protection. Ironclad brings an unparalleled level of innovation to the marketplace, and the brand has become known for having the most advanced intellectual property in the industry. Today, competitors strive to copy and improve upon what made Ironclad successful. Ironclad’s continuous development of new materials and technologies when coupled with its current patented technologies, partnerships and concentration on its core strengths, reinforces Ironclad’s position as a leader.
Increased Awareness In a Growing Global Market:
The global market for personal protective equipment (PPE) continues to record significant growth as companies and governments work to improve safety and performance. The multi-billion dollar PPE hand protection market, is one of the largest aspects of PPE. This is a critical time for hand safety in the industrial world. Hand injuries account for nearly 70 percent of all work injuries today. HSE professionals in the industry have realized that hand safety is their most pressing challenge and Ironclad is providing their solution.
New Management Positions Company for Growth:
Ironclad has gone through a significant transformation since early 2014. After a change in senior management and relocation to Texas, Ironclad’s new management team began to transform the business in a number of key ways. The management team has built a global supply chain expanding its reach and capabilities in terms of production and development. Ironclad today claims a dramatically improved speed to market, expanded capacity, and competitive product cost position as well as the development of new technologies. The company has brought to market new technologies that are gaining both key placement and strong customer acceptance.
Vibram Technology Drives New Standards for Performance and Durability:
This technology has opened new doors and growth opportunities for Ironclad. Ironclad’s most recent venture involves the world leader in shoe sole technology, Vibram Industries. Ironclad has adapted Vibram’s coveted rubber sole technology for use on the palms of work and sporting gloves. These are truly some of the most revolutionary and high performance products ever created.
The polymer-based product will replace the synthetic leather used on the palms of Ironclad’s gloves creating a quantum increase in the durability and grip of its gloves, both highly sought after attributes of industries worldwide.
Ironclad Expands base of Global Distributors:
Today, Ironclad sells to more than 2500 distributors and merchants around the globe. Ironclad’s fastest growing area involves large industrial distribution groups. Ironclad was recently selected by WW Grainger as their strategic supply partner for performance and impact gloves across North America. At the beginning of 2016, Ironclad joined forces with industrial leader WESCO to expand their glove offerings and develop new technology for the electric arc protection for public utility workers. The company continues to expand its base of distributors as well in Canada and other parts of the world.
