At this year’s Safety 2022 conference in Chicago, Illinois, Hultafors Group North America will launch two of its most successful European PPE brands to the U.S. market. Snickers Workwear is recognized for highly innovative and purposefully designed work garments. Solid Gear footwear is acclaimed for its combination of athletic shoe technology with safety boot functionality. Both Snickers Workwear and Solid Gear Footwear will be available at over 40,000 retail outlets across the country.

Snickers Workwear makes the tools that every professional tradesman needs – durable and functional trousers, jackets, and tops. Using clever ideas and innovative technologies, they have been inventing and reinventing the workwear industry with world-first solutions like holster pockets, advanced fabrics like Stretch CORDURA®, and game-changing protection like integrated pockets for insertable kneepads.

Solid Gear builds safety footwear inspired by athletes and approved by workers – around the world. It’s this unique combination of cutting-edge technology and comfort, with certified protection and performance that make Solid Gear sporty enough to wear off-site, and sturdy enough to wear through an entire day’s work. The only PPE footwear brand using the BOA® Fit System in North America, Solid Gear delivers fit solutions built for performance.

“The launch of two of our most established and innovative PPE brands, Snickers Workwear and Solid Gear footwear, further demonstrates the commitment that Hultafors Group has towards the North American market. Together with our brands Hultafors Tools, CLC, Johnson Level and Tool, Hellberg, and Kuny’s, we believe that the Hultafors Group is now better suited than ever to meet the demands of professionals in the building and construction industries.”, says Peter Chatel, President at Hultafors Group North America.
