Lending A Helping Hand

Total Industrial Tool Supply and Rich Conn, are working hard to grow their business but also know that being part of their local community is imperative. They have recently made contributions by donating Boss Gloves to a local school that will in-turn help to complete renovation projects safely by reducing hand injury.
On Saturday, August 18, 2018 the Pride of Locust Grove Band (Pirates) had a work day on their new building. Part of this work day required removing 2000 square foot of 1 inch thick plywood as well as 16 foot long 2″x10″ runners that made up the existing floor.
Industrial Maintenance Inc. and Total Industrial Tool Supply of Pryor, Oklahoma donated their time, tools and Boss Gloves for this worthy cause! Our Boss Extreme® Plus, style 1CF7000 cut resistant gloves were the perfect solution to help keep everyone protected against cuts and abrasions during their tough work day.
 “Thanks to Rich & the entire staff at Industrial Maintenance Inc. & Total Industrial Tool Supply for your partnership & community support. It’s because of great partners like you who help to keep our business thriving.”~ Robin Danielson, Territory Sales Manager​

Midway Rental’s Annual Buyers Show

Boss Manufacturing attended Midway Rental’s Annual Buyers Show in Marquette, MI on Friday, April 20th. Marquette is enjoying a recent boom in their construction industry including a new hospital and a major hotel renovation. Linda Black attended the show and discussed the differences between various styles of Boss cut resistant gloves. She was excited to share her knowledge and promote safety!

Training = Growth

Boss participated in Kelly Supply’s yearly sales meeting by providing product training to managers and sales teams. Training sessions were offered all day long. Each session was done in 3 to 4 member units lasting 30 minutes each. During these training sessions, team members were introduced to new products, marketing strategies, and product knowledge. With this training and education, we hope to guarantee the growth of Kelly Supply for years to come.
 
Boss also supported Kelly Supply by having a booth at the Grand Opening of their new store in Kearney, Nebraska on Tuesday, Feb 27th, 2018. Customers enjoyed lunch provided by Kelly Supply and had the opportunity to explore their new 7,000 square foot location while looking at new products and placing orders.
 
“Thanks to the entire Kelly Supply family for your dedication & enthusiasm in promoting Boss Safety Products!” ~ Robin Danielson, Territory Sales Manager  

Boss Supports Welding Contest with Matheson Gas

The NCK Tech High School & College GMAW Welding Invitational Competition was held in Beloit, KS on March 1st & 2nd, 2018. Students came from Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma to compete. This is the second year Boss has donated welding gloves for the competition.
 
The contest showcases each student’s ability to weld with the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) process in all positions according to a blueprint. Awards and prizes were given to the top 5 individual welders as well as the top teams. Prizes included gloves, plaques, and scholarships.

Boss was happy to support the Hastings, Nebraska location of Matheson Gas again this year by providing Welding Gloves to the contestants. As these fine, young students begin heading into the workforce, we hope we have been a positive influence in helping them not only wear the right personal protective equipment but to put safety first!
 
“Thanks to Bob Managers & Mark Bonifas for asking us to participate in this event again. Working together on these special events strengthens my goal of building productive partnerships & growing business. Thanks again!” ~ Robin Danielson, Territory Sales Manager
