08/27/2014

CHICAGO, IL, August 26, 2014 — Magid, the leading manufacturer and distributor of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) have united in the fight against breast cancer for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Magid is encouraging its customers to select from an assortment of pink PPE, including gloves, eye protection and hard hats, to wear throughout the month of October. Magid will donate 10 percent of the pink PPE sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

“We’re offering a variety of pink PPE products and urging our customers to ‘Pink Out’ their workforces to show support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Gigi Cohen, Executive Vice President and Co-Owner of Magid. “For us, safety and wellness go hand in hand and this is a great way to partner with our customers for a cause that affects so many women and their families.”

The pink PPE brands being offered include Magid’s own lines of hearing protection, eye protection and gloves, as well as products from PIP, Showa Best and Honeywell. The products include Magid’s ChromaTek® cut-protection glove, which comes in a variety of high-visibility colors, including pink, and an innovative women’s gardening glove that works with touchscreen devices and smartphones.

“We’re delighted to partner with a company like Magid to help raise funding and awareness in the industrial and occupational safety space,” said Brent Hail, Senior Vice President of Development for NBFC. “The funds they raise will be used to help educate women around the world about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.”
