Clarion Safety Systems Acquires Machine Safety Specialists

Clarion Safety Systems, a leading manufacturer of safety labels, signs, tags, and complementary product safety and risk reduction services, acquires the machine safety consulting and compliance practice, Machine Safety Specialists.

Milford, PA (PRWEB) - Clarion Safety Systems, a leading manufacturer of safety labels, signs, and tags, has acquired Machine Safety Specialists, a leading machine safety and compliance consulting practice.

“Together with the Machine Safety Specialists team, we’re very pleased to share this exciting news with our collective customers and partners in safety,” says Ron Crawford, CEO of Clarion Safety Systems. “By bringing the expertise of Machine Safety Specialists’ highly trained safety engineers into the Clarion Safety family, we know we can bring greater value to our customers in the shared goals of increasing safety and reducing risk.”

Clarion Safety has a longstanding, 30 year history of collaborating with customers to implement best practices in relation to a broad range of product safety standards to maximize safety and reduce risk.
