Wooster Products Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Wooster Products, the industry leader in anti-slip safety stair treads and walkway products, celebrates their 100th anniversary with a year-long celebration of activities and promotions.  Long respected for their quality and innovation, their anti-slip products for new construction, renovation and OEM applications are found in commercial and industrial settings worldwide.  From an early installation at the University of Notre Dame in 1922, to the Statue of Liberty, to major league sports venues, to the One World Trade Center building, and the many transit systems that carry passengers to destinations like these and others. A century after their founding, Wooster Products continues to “Make Every Step a Safe One” as their slogan suggests.
Ferrogrit® cast iron stair treads, Alumogrit® cast aluminum stair treads, and Spectra®, Supergrit®, Stairmaster® and Flexmaster® extruded aluminum stair treads can be found in stairwells within buildings and structures across all industries.  In addition, Flex-Tred® pressure sensitive adhesive anti-slip tapes and Walk-A-Sured® and Safe-Stride® coatings enhance the safety of non-stairway applications for commercial and industrial applications.  The company continues to pioneer the safety industry with inventions like their NITEGLOW® photoluminescent (glow-in-the-dark) product which allows safe egress in darkened environments.
The Loehr family which started the enterprise, ran it for 3 generations before selling in 1980.  The second generation of the Arora family currently manages the company.
In a business that is all about keeping people safe, it is not surprising that relationships are so vital to the culture of the company which boasts many long-tenured employees.
“We’ve been fortunate to work with so many great customers, architects, representatives, distributors and employees over the years,” said Poonam Arora Harvey, President.  “’Make Every Step A Safe One’ has been our mantra for many decades and continues to guide us in our daily work, whether we’re developing new products or making them safer for the environment.”
