Quaker Safety was founded in 1946 as a manufacturer of protective clothing for industry and automotive seat covers. During the ensuing years, the company expanded into production of aluminized protective clothing for steel mills, government and other industries. The company began to produce turnout gear for the U. S. Government during the 1960s and by 1986 had made the manufacture of NFPA 1971 compliant structural and proximity turnout gear its primary focus.
