Abco Safety has served the safety industry in the tri-state area of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana since 1987. The company provides an array of personal protective equipment (PPE) and safety solutions for local and national customers.

Abco Safety has an additional location in Paducah, Kentucky, where it serves as a specialized supplier of marine, MRO, and safety supplies to the marine industry.

The acquisition of Abco Safety marks the second strategic acquisition in 2021 for parent Ritz Safety, after acquiring Safety Resource Inc. of Rock Hill, South Carolina in May. Safety Resource has served the safety industry in the Charlotte, North Carolina and northern South Carolina region of the U.S. for over 25 years. 

Since 2015 Ritz Safety has acquired four other safety supply companies and grown organically to new or expanded facilities in Tampa and Pompano Beach, Florida; Houston; Las Vegas; and Indianapolis.
