ABOUT MIDWESTERN SAFETY EQUIPMENT
When Ken and Mary Lee Barklage started Midwestern Safety in 1955, they decided to concentrate on 3 main business characteristics to establish a strong and long-lasting company. While the blueprint for success wasn’t complex, it has proven to be very effective. More than 60 years later, Midwestern Safety is still focused on those 3 pillars:
IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO IT, DO IT WELL
Midwestern Safety focuses only on Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and other products to achieve a safer workplace. With changing regulations, standards and workplace needs, it is important to have a resource to help introduce new solutions, products and ways to stay compliant. It is tough to be an expert in everything, so we focus on keeping your workforce in compliance, and most importantly, safe.
BECOME A TRUE RESOURCE FOR CUSTOMERS
Anyone can take an order, but a true resource will gain an understanding of the problem or situation to ensure the best solution is found. Our job is to make sure you offer the best possible solution and product to protect your employees. The more we know about your work environment and the specific job hazards, the more assistance we will be able to provide to ensure the best item is selected. Our customers not only view us as a safety supplier, they also see us as a safety consultant. Our sales and customer service teams have all received industry and supplier training certifications and we will continue to ensure we are current with all industry trends and regulations moving forward.
DEVELOP LONG TERM PARTNERSHIPS
It isn’t easy to stay in business for over 60 years. Without loyal customers and suppliers, we could not do what we do. Of course, a fair price is important to our clients, but our additional service is what differentiates Midwestern Safety from other suppliers. Whether it is an on-site visit to discuss a unique hazard, or a demonstration at a monthly safety meeting, Midwestern Safety will become a part of your team to help strengthen your safety program. True experience and product expertise take time to accumulate. After more than 60 years and 3 generations, we have learned a lot. Moving forward, we will continue to be the leaders in industry knowledge and service and we welcome the opportunity to work with you to create a safer workplace.
