Rockford Systems, ISS Safety form partnership
Rockford Systems LLC and ISS Safety, LTD. have entered into a strategic partnership that provides machine safeguarding customers with uniform, single-source solutions to reduce risk of accidents and improve employee safety.
Today’s agreement “brings together these two industry leaders to implement safeguarding solutions for companies with locations throughout the world,” states the joint press release.
“Large domestic and international corporations with multi-site facilities are finding it increasingly difficult to track risk status and machine safety,” says Joe Nitiss, CEO of Rockford Systems. “To address this challenge, forward-thinking EHS managers are seeking standardized global safety platforms consisting of similar assessment policies, training courses, safeguarding hardware, and installation techniques. By partnering with ISS Safety, Rockford Systems can give its customers consistent solutions, wherever they are located.”
Rockford Systems was founded in 1971 and is based in Rockford, Ill. It is a provider of turnkey machine safeguarding products and services to the North American market.
Rockford Systems offers machine safeguarding assessments, custom engineered solutions, a broad offering of safety products, and expert installation by factory service technicians.
“ISS has deep knowledge and expertise in European machine safety standards and applications, which should prove to be extremely valuable for our current and future customers,” says Mark Salter, project director for ISS Safety. “This milestone partnership strategically aligns both of our companies for long-term success.”
