Insulated Protective Clothing Company Joins ANSI
Refrigiwear (www.refrigiwear.com) of Dahlonega, Ga., is one of 10 companies that joined the American National Standards Institute last month, ANSI said. The list includes ALCOA Inc., Nordstrom Inc., and C.H. Bull Company (www.chbullco.com), a South San Francisco, Calif., distributor of ladders, power tools, scaffolding, fall protection and confined space equipment, and tools for electricians and plumbers, among other equipment.
ANSI (www.ansi.org) has more than 125,000 member companies that support its work promulgating voluntary consensus standards and conformance assessment systems.
"Active participation in ANSI and its programs can serve as both a strategic and tangible asset for an organization," said Brian Meincke, ANSI's director of membership development. "Not only will they gain access to information and business intelligence that is not available elsewhere, but they will also receive discounts on many products and services. Equally important, they can build relationships that empower them with a voice and influence over the standardization and conformity assessment decisions that directly affect their business. We are confident that their ANSI Membership will be a valuable and affordable investment."
