National Safety Apparel Acquires King Louie Sewing Facility
King Louie America proudly continues this tradition with union-made, USA-made shirts, outerwear, and ladies' wear. In 2018, National Safety Apparel acquired Rubin Brothers, another union-made, USA-made apparel manufacturer. The proven success of increasing capacity and adding experienced team members to the NSA family through the Rubin Brothers acquisition laid the groundwork for the King Louie acquisition. National Safety Apparel CEO and owner Chuck Grossman shares, “In today’s challenging labor
market, we’re always looking at innovative ways to grow our US manufacturing capacity and employ American workers. Acquiring King Louie allows us to increase our output serve our customers better, sustaining NSA’s commitment to US manufacturing.” A market leader in the design and manufacture of high-quality industrial safety apparel and military apparel, National Safety Apparel provides industrial and safety garments for wearers in the electrical and gas utilities, steel mills and aluminum foundries, glass plants, construction, manufacturing, and the armed forces while employing American workers to protect America’s workforce. The experienced team at King Louie joins National Safety Apparel’s US-based manufacturing locations in Cleveland, Ohio; Chicago, Illinois; Gorham, New Hampshire; Fort Smith, Arkansas; Columbus, Georgia; and now Baxter Springs, Kansas.
