Probuy Safety Solutions Was The Brainchild Of Kevin Gortmaker.
While working alongside his father, Karl Gortmaker, operating an auto body supply shop, he started adding some gloves and masks to his inventory. As demand for these products grew, Kevin was inspired to expand this line, until one day he realized that his interest was now solely on learning all about the safety business.
Kevin and his father decided to put their combined focus completely on the safety products business. They closed the auto body supply business and opened Probuy Safety Solutions in 1995. They have a passion for helping keep their customers safe on the job and at home. With their motto being “Safety is all we do” they now carry or have access to thousands of safety products.
When you meet Karl and Kevin, the first thing you will notice is their height, as they are both well over 6 feet tall. These men are gentle giants though, so no need to be wary of them. Because they have been in the safety business for 25 years, they have a wealth of knowledge to call upon to help their many happy and satisfied customers stay safe.
Probuy added a Safety Training Division in 2014, where they provide an extensive array of safety training options for their new and existing customers. All Working at Heights training is provided by Ministry of Labour Approved Safety Trainers. You can find an extensive list of the training classes offered under the tab, “Probuy Safety Course List” on the home page of our website, as well as a calendar showing the schedule of upcoming classes. Just click on the red button titled, “Safety Training” to navigate your way to these options. Our Safety Training co-ordinator is very knowledgeable and is always happy to answer any questions you may have about the courses offered.
As of May 2019, Kevin’s son Kyle became part of the Probuy team. We would like to welcome Kyle to the team and wish him great success with his role in the future growth of Probuy Safety Solutions.
