Combine a family tradition in textiles, a desire to make a difference, a lot of hard work … and you have Tuff-n-Lite®; the leading high-performance specialty material in America. In 1981, we decided we wanted to make a real difference in people’s lives. We saw a need for a safety fabric that was stronger than steel, highly cut-and-abrasion resistant yet as soft, flexible and comfortable to wear as cotton.
After years of research and development we did it! We achieved our goal and created the impossible. We created Tuff-n-Lite®!
Tuff-n-Lite® was first launched in the food handling industry; meat processing is particularly dangerous, and amputated fingers, hands and limbs used to be commonplace. Thanks to Tuff-n-Lite®, that’s changed. Tuff-n-Lite® aprons, sleeves, smocks and gloves have saved an immeasurable amount of pain and suffering for employees and millions of dollars for the companies that employ them.
This new technology is now being introduced to the police, motorcycle and sportswear industries. This means that everyone -- from police and firemen to motorcycle riders and extreme sports participants will be a little …or a lot…safer!
We have a wall full of patents and thank-you letters from satisfied customers. More important, today a lot of meatpackers have 10 fingers, thanks to Tuff-n-Lite®.
