53 Years of Calolympic Safety
THE year was 1958 . . . The New York Yankees won the World Series against Milwaukee, EXPLORER I, United States of America's first satellite, was launched into space, and Calolympic Glove Company opened the doors for business. From its humble beginnings in a warehouse/office space behind a retail store on Magnolia, our founding father, Joel Halpern, along with Bob Cappel, worked long, hard hours to put Calolympic into everyone's Rolodex as their glove supplier. In 1963, tragedy struck, as a fire raged through the building, virtually destroying all in its path. Thanks to our vendors—many of whom are still with us today—rallied around the fragile business and sent truckloads of inventory to the aid of Joel and Bob. The company returned to the market place stronger than ever!
Calolympic Glove saw many changes in the next 50 years. After the fire in 1963, home for Calolympic was 5959 Republic Street for the next 29 years. Sadness struck again in 1967, as Bob Cappel passed away suddenly, leaving Joel to manage the now thriving business. Leslie Basney came on board in 1976, managing a San Marcos branch of operations. Business was booming! Growth had taken hold of what was once a two-man operation. Gloves were not the only product on the linecard, either. The new Calolympic Glove and Safety was now in the business of selling safety related products and services as well as the fl agship: gloves. Employing about 25 people, Calolympic once again saw another opportunity for expansion. Dale Bermond, joining the Calolympic team in November 1984, moved the Riverside operation to a 30,000 square foot building at 4111 Latham Street in 1993. Additional growth of market share in 1998 led us to our existing facility where we remain today. Supplying Homeland Defense Products as well as Police, Fire and Rescue products have given us an additional identity in the market known as Flame Tamers.
The year is 2011 . . . 53 years later, Calolympic Safety employs 35 people who are instrumental in creating an established position in the market place with diversified products lines. Calolympic Glove & Safety's proud heritage looks to the future with positive anticipation due to loyal, hard-working employees, supportive customers, and valued vendors. Our strong foundation, lead by president Dale Bermond and strengthened by a determined staff of employees, continue to seek out new opportunities to solidify Calolympic for many more years to come.
