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.
In 1963, tragedy struck, as a fire raged through the building, virtually destroying all in its path. Thanks to our vendors-many of who are still with us today-rallied around the fragile business and sent truckloads of support to Calolympic.
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.
The new Calolympic Glove and Safety was now in the business of selling safety related products and services as well as the flagship: gloves. Employing about 25 people, Calolympic once again saw another opportunity for expansion and 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 market.
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.
