Pittsfield, NH - Globe Manufacturing Company, the nation’s largest manufacturer of firefighter suits and emergency responder gear, announced today that it has opened a new manufacturing facility in Ada, Oklahoma.

“Our new Ada, Oklahoma, facility will help us meet the growing demand for Globe products throughout the country as well as internationally,” said Don Welch, President of Globe Manufacturing. “Globe prides itself on both quality products and customer service. Our new manufacturing facility will ensure that customer orders are delivered on time and we have the expanded capacity to offer custom ordering, as well as product servicing and repairs, on a timely and efficient basis.”
