April 07, 2015, Posted in News


MEMPHIS, TN-April 6, 2015- Radians, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high performance Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), announced today that it has acquired Massachusetts-based VisionAid, Inc.  VisionAid manufactures SideShields, portable emergency eyewash stations, and lens cleaning products with a variety of custom packaging options.
 
According to Radians' CEO, Mike Tutor, "The acquisition of VisionAid allows Radians to continue building our manufacturing operations in the United States, just as our acquisition of Carolina Safety Sport did over three years ago for our high visibility clothing line. Expanding our U.S. manufacturing operations enables Radians to be a better supply chain partner because of reduced lead times as well as having better quality control over processes and product," stated Tutor. In addition to amplifying Radians' USA manufacturing operations, the acquisition allows for customizing lens cleaning products with a customer's logo and name, and also provides Radians with additional injection molding capabilities.
 
The VisionAid management team will remain the same, and VisionAid will continue operating from its current facility in Wareham, Massachusetts, where orders will be entered and shipped by VisionAid employees.
 
Daniel McCarthy, President of VisionAid, stated, "The collective strength of the Radians sales and marketing team will help to drive additional growth of our products and open up new markets in the industrial and retail channels."

The survey reports that “3 million women now hunt and over 5 million women enjoy shooting.” To support the growing number of female shooters and hunters, Radians is developing a pink safety line for women that includes eye, ear, and hand protection. Some of the products in the women’s line include:

Radians Line of Mossy Oak® Safety Products Provide Camouflage & Protection

June 11, 2012, Posted in News

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


MEMPHIS, TN
– If a sponsor at The Hunger Games had sent a Radians® Hunter’s Ears™ electronic camouflage earmuff to Katniss Everdeen, she may have avoided partial deafness after the mine explosion while still being able to hear any tributes sneaking up on her.  In light of the recent fanfare associated with The Hunger Games, Radians® is proud to offer an extensive line of camouflage Mossy Oak® safety products for hunting that provides both concealment and protection for the outdoor enthusiast.

Respectful of fashion trends and passionate about safety equipment, Radians Mossy Oak-licensed patterns provide camouflage style and high-tech features to protect hearing and vision.

High-Tech Hearing Protection

By combining electronic amplification and automatic compression technology, Radians Hunter’s Ears™ have revolutionized hearing protection for the sports enthusiast. The main benefit of an electronic earmuff, such as Radians Hunter’s Ears™, is the enhancement of outdoor sounds while providing concealment, warmth, comfort, and ear protection from muzzle blast sounds.
The electronic sound amplification earmuff with 2 independent high frequency directional microphones enhances the surrounding sounds, thereby providing an environment where users can hear range commands and game, as well as their hunting partners. The compression technology automatically compresses harmful impulse noise to a safer range below 85dB without clipping or cutting. The camouflage Mossy Oak pattern offers concealment, something else that is very important as witnessed in The Hunger Games.

A Mossy Oak-patterned earmuff called the Low Set Camo is available from the Radians passive hearing collection. Its adjustable CoolMax® headband offers a comfortable, tight fit, which is important in blocking out harmful noise in passive hearing protection.

Vision Protection

Radians also has Mossy Oak camouflage patterns available in its arsenal of vision protection.  A variety of formats are available:

Youth

Safety, including hearing and eye protection, is an important concept to teach our youth, especially when it comes to the world of hunting and shooting. Radians designed the Journey Jr.™ in Mossy Oak® Break-Up® camo shooting glasses specifically for younger shooting and hunting enthusiasts.

Specialty Eyewear

Radians Mossy Oak Polarized Cobalt safety glasses provide a quality polarized lens. This specialty lens eliminates reflective glare that directly hits the lens and also a portion that hits at other angles.  Eliminating reflective glare reduces eyestrain, allowing a crisp view of the surroundings in richer colors. For those around water, it eliminates reflection and allows viewing below the water’s surface.

Hunter’s Kit™

The Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Hunter’s Kit by Radians provides the combination of eyeware and hearing protection in one convenient kit. The Journey™ shooting glass with a full wraparound frame, 4-position telescoping temple, is available with a Cease Fire™ earplug or a pair of tan Custom Molded Earplugs.

Mossy Oak® Break-Up® patterns are available through a full line of Radians® Electronic and Passive Products.  For more information, contact a sales representative at 1.877.723.4267 or visit www.Radians.com.
