About Us

Who we are

Northern Safety & Industrial has been keeping workers safe and productive for over 30 years. We got our start by selling first aid supplies and gloves from the back of a pick-up truck and we've grown to an industry leader in providing safety supplies and industrial products.

Our driving force of success is the ability to adapt quickly to marketing conditions and providing solutions for saving you time, money, and resources. We have over 100,000 core products available to ship the same day from one of our many locations across the nation.

Our History

This is where it all began! We sold medical and first aid supplies out of this truck.
We finally got an office...and phones!
We're growing! We have a larger office space and our very first, official warehouse.
We changed our address again! We moved into our new, larger, state-of-the-art office and warehouse space in Frankfort, NY.
Web Is born!
We expanded our product offering...and our warehouse. We doubled its size to make room for all of our new products.
NS® Products are born. The family started with N-Specs® and is still growing!
Our Northern Safety family is growing. Safeco, located in Church Hill, TN and Charleston, SC, joined our team and we welcomed them with open arms!
We added a warehouse in Church Hill, TN to serve our customers even better and faster than before. To facilitate even better service for our customers, we implemented the ILS Warehouse Management System, now known as SCALE. We also completed our acquisition of TeleGreet.
The new Houston, TX warehouse opens and is ready to ship orders. We're getting closer to you to make sure you get your products FAST! And, our Leadership Development Program was born!
In an effort to provide our customers with a scalable solution for all their unique requirements, we stated the search for an ERP system that would fit our business model now and into the future. We also put our Core Values/Mission Statement in writing this year!
We established partnerships and processes with offshore development partners, allowing us to match development resources with the needs of our business.
Our family is getting bigger! We welcomed Care Safety of Memphis and Nashville, TN, and Wayest Safety of Tulsa and Oklahoma City, OK. We're happy you're on our team!
What a year! Not only did we implement SAP®, a world-class computer operating system, we also welcomed Channel Safety Marine Supply of Texas and Louisiana to our family. Welcome aboard!
It was another busy year. We opened our new Personalization and Customization service and instituted our new customer survey through Brand integrity!
We completed the acquisition of A-Z Marine Supply, gaining even more locations. Plus, we opened a location in Longview, TX! We also completed our WMS upgrade, improving our efficiencies as one company with one vision. AND, we're redesigning our website to make it more user-friendly and optimized for easy shopping on mobile devices!
Southland Industrial Supply joined the Northern Safety family and Northern Safety joins the Würth family! The Würth Group is the world's market leader in its core business, the trade in assembly and fastening materials. This partnership promises incredible opportunities for both companies!
