About Us

Edward Wilding
Founder & President

Associated Safety Inc. is an established company with extensive experience in supplying a wide range of protective safety products including a variety of specialized clothing and services for numerous residential, commercial, and government clients.

We are proud to say that we are representing some of the top name brands within the industry. Over the last almost two decades we are indeed fortunate to have developed a sizable customer base throughout the province of British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. Among our customers we have many large clients such as the majority of the departments in The Greater Vancouver Area and many other departments spread all over Vancouver Island up to and including many in the Yukon, and many more all over the country and the USA.

We are the leader in repair and maintenance of turnout gear in western Canada. Being one of the first in Canada and the first in West Canada, our personnel have been trained and have repaired turnout gear from all manufacturers over the past 20 years. Our Independent Service Provider (ISP) verified cleaning, repair and maintenance centre shows that we do not only have a vast knowledge of every detail of this process, but also exceed the standards implemented by the NFPA 1851 (Standard on selection, care, and maintenance of protective ensembles for structural fire fighting and proximity fire fighting).

Because of the increased awareness of NFPA 1851 (Cleaning & Repairs) throughout the fire service, the volume of our cleaning and repairs services side of the business has dramatically increased over the past few years. This has resulted in the company having to increase its capability by adding additional equipment and personnel.

Mission Statement:

Our approach to business is based on a philosophy of values; dedication, quality and service. Our staff is committed to delivering high-quality safety products that are built with the customers safety as a top priority and to service those products to maintain that level of safety throughout the life of those products.

We consider our customers to be the most valuable members of our business because we feel very strongly that if we look after them they will in turn look after us.
