Justrite acquires First Safety

Justrite announced its acquisition of First Safety Corporation, a Janesville, Wisconsin-based manufacturer of equipment designed for handling gas cylinders.

Its products include barricade racks, handling trucks, cylinder pallets, cylinder security cabinets, fire barrier equipped products and other products used in industrial, safety and scientific markets.

“As a manufacturer of products that safely handle and store compressed gas containers, First Safety is a logical adjacency to Justrite’s chemical management business unit,” said Mark McElhinny, Justrite president and CEO. “The new line complements Justrite’s existing aluminum cylinder and LPG lockers, and offers our customers a greater depth of solutions for gas cylinder management. Our worldwide network of industrial distributors will benefit from consolidating their safety purchases through one of the most trusted brands in the industry.”
