Globe Manufacturing Named December “Innovation Rocks!” Winner

Monday, December 13th, 2010

A dynamic new bodyworn electronics system for firefighters and first responders has led to Globe Manufacturing being named the “Innovation Rocks!” award winner by the New Hampshire Business Resource Center for the month of December.

Globe Manufacturing, the nation’s largest manufacturer of firefighter suits and emergency responder gear, recently teamed with Zephyr Technology Corporation and TRX Systems to develop an electronics system that helps firefighters and first responders to answer the questions “Where am I?” and “How am I?” The new system will utilize a unified graphical user interface in flame resistant base-layer shirts for monitoring both physiology and location/tracking.

“Globe Manufacturing, has once again developed a product that will save lives and improve the operations of those we trust to protect us,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy. “Their continued ingenuity is the hallmark of their business and they continue to prove that when it comes to innovation and creativity, they are tops in their industry.”
