Bullard Shoots for a Hard Hat Record

Bullard's celebration this year of the 100th anniversary of the Cynthiana, Ky.-based company's invention of the hard hat will include a unique and photogenic display on Jan. 12 -- during halftime of the Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball game in Lexington against Vanderbilt, Bullard will try to break a Guinness World Record. Bullard announced Jan. 9 that it is supplying 10,000 hard hats to fans attending the 7:30 p.m. game in order to break the record for the largest gathering of people wearing safety helmets at an event.

A Guinness World Record representative will attend the game to verify the record-breaking event.

Kentucky perennially is #1 or #2 in highest attendance for NCAA men's basketball teams. Average attendance for the team's 2018 home games at Rupp Arena was 21,874, tops in the country.

Bullard invented the Hard Boiled® Hat in 1919. It supplies head protection products to workers worldwide; the full product line includes thermal imagers, fire and rescue helmets, head and face protection, and respiratory equipment. "We are proud of the role Bullard has played in revolutionizing the safety industry," said CEO Wells Bullard. "Our vision to advance human safety to enable long, healthy, productive lives through innovative solutions is our commitment to every customer who chooses a Bullard product. A huge thank you to our most valued customers, employees, distributors, and suppliers for supporting us throughout the years and in the future."
