It All Started With A Kit
Ted has a bit of a history when it comes to making product focused kits. It all started back in 1988 at Napa Auto Parts, when he had the idea of taking some of their best selling Fisher Snow Plow parts and packaging them in a kit for plow owners who frequently found themselves with a broken hose at 2 AM plowing 18″ of heavy snow. The idea resonated with Napa’s customer base, and the was an immediate success. A&A Albeco still sells Plow Bolt kits, an extension of that idea, to this day.
Fast forward to today, when Ted was approached by Tewksbury Police Department to help supply their officers with the equipment they needed to handle dangerous substances while on patrol. There wasn’t anything special about the components; gloves, Tyvek, goggles and respirator masks, but Ted had ambitions to exceed the standard, both in equipment quality and packaging. Instead of officers having to manage stock levels of protective equipment and find a way to store it safely in their vehicles, why not package the equipment together in a strong storage bag. The result was a well-labeled, easy-to-store kit that packaged everything an officer needs to react to a substance exposure in the field, for a very affordable price. It was an immediate success statewide, and the Substance Exposure Kit (SEK) became a permanent offering of Bennett Noble LLC..
The next challenge was finding an answer to the question every department we partnered with was asking: “what else do you have?”. We built Public Safety PPE to showcase our best products to our local law enforcement communities.
