ST. PAUL, Minn. (May 20, 2014) – Safe Reflections, a global technology leader in providing reflective solutions to the occupational safety, consumer active wear apparel and military training markets, has been awarded two contracts totaling $3.5 million to provide reflective material for United States Air Force training apparel.
These multi-year contracts are the latest in a series of military partnerships between Safe Reflections and UNICOR, which manufactures wearables for the U.S. Armed Services. The U.S. Air Force will use Eclipse™ Reflective Logos for its physical training shirts and trunks, allowing for superior reflectivity, wash durability and comfort.
“We are honored to continue our productive relationship with Unicor on behalf of those who serve the United States Air Force,” said Chuck Gruber, president and chief operating officer for Safe Reflections. “Our Eclipse reflective technology enhances safety through visibility, and keeps Air Force personnel cool and comfortable while conducting their fitness training.”
All Safe Reflections Eclipse™ Reflective Logos are made using 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material and the company’s own line of proprietary Tribondex™ adhesives to produce a custom heat transfer application for low-temperature and high-stretch fabrics. This allows the fabric to move with the garment, for maximum breathability and comfort, a critical consideration for the U.S. Air Force. All components are made in the U.S.A.
Safe Reflections enjoys a longstanding relationship with the U.S. Air Force and UNICOR. On April 14, 2014, at UNICOR’s bi-annual Supplier Business Development meeting, Safe Reflections was acknowledged by receiving their Supply Chain Award for outstanding performance in supplying the Air Force trunk materials.
