About ASC

Here in Sellersville PA, we at American Safety Clothing are constantly reminded of our proud American heritage. We strive to honor those who have come before us. We do so by upholding  the vision of our Founding Fathers – a strong America. That is why for the last  60 years our goal has been to keep manufacturing jobs in America.   We do so by producing the finest American made safety apparel found anywhere. In a time when our competitors are moving jobs overseas and flooding the market with inferior foreign made safety apparel – American Safety Clothing stays true to our countries historic values and we fight to keep the American label worn by  today’s workers.  Safety saves lives – quality saves jobs. Over 250 years ago Benjamin Franklin knew the value of a quality product when penned the phrase:

 The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten

 The next time you go to put on your Arc Flash / Flash Fire coveralls or your daily FR work wear,  or you reach for your aluminized clothing to don before your next stint working in the forge – read the label – are you wearing AMERICAN?  The clothing that is meant to save your life should not be purchased from the guy bringing it in from China/Mexico – when your life depends on it – who do you depend on?  It is time to take a stance and once again become “American worker proud to be wearing American”.  Look at the pictures below – do you really want to be wearing “cheap” foreign made clothing when that panel goes – the goal is to be able to walk away from a potential life altering event and quality American made clothing will help you do that.

At American Safety Clothing we get visitors all the time coming in asking us how we can produce such a high quality garment working out of a building that is over 100 years old. The answer is simple – “our building might be old but the technology inside is state-of-the-art”.  Come along and watch how we can cut over 15 40 Cal jackets in just over 90 seconds.

In this video we stage the fabric before cutting – we know exactly how big a piece of fabric that we need to make whatever clothing we are producing that day.  In this video we are making 40 CAL jackets:  Watch

One of the things you will notice when you watch this video is how little waste there is of the fabric.  Look closely at the wall in the back ground – just five years ago all fabric was cut using a jig saw and one of those patterns.  It would take 30 minutes to cut 5 40 cal jackets.  Isn’t technology a wonderful thing.
