OUR HISTORY

Our founder’s, Retired Akron Police Sergeant, Vince Blanco and his wife Josephine “Jo” had a vision in 1961 of bringing a new industry and increased safety to the roads of the Rubber Capital.

While being on patrol Vince found a need to provide a safer road for both the public and the workers. Shortly after he founded Akron Safety LIte and Equipment Company he introduced the first battery powered case light to the Akron area. This would go on to replace the original “smudge pots”. From that moment on it was about originating and innovating road safety equipment for Akron and NorthEast Ohio.

Vince and Jo continued to work together, until Vince’s untimely death in 1994 leaving his Legacy to his wife Jo, three daughters and 5 grandchildren. We continue their mission of working towards a safer Ohio to this day.
