HiVis Supply Blog
With March Madness underway, your favorite high visibility safety distributor took care of business and picked up its first hardware of the year as it was named to the Industrial Distribution 2019 Watch List. HiVis Supply is one of seven distributors in the industrial and safety field to be named to the watch list, which is in its ninth year. The Watch List provides a spotlight on companies that have been making a positive impact in the industrial and safety fields.
“The awareness of the need for HiVis apparel and the demand within the US workplace has certainly assisted us with our growth,” said Donald Meeker, president of HiVis Supply. “However, we have worked tirelessly to ensure that when a consumer is seeking high visibility safety apparel, the HiVis Supply name is the name that immediately comes to mind.”
Below is HiVis Supply’s company profile in the Industrial Distribution magazine.
What are the key product categories for the company?
HiVis supplies high visibility safety apparel (HVSA).
What are the defining qualities of the company culture?
HIiVis Supply continues to maintain the long-term customer relationships not commonly associated with an online-only distributor—a commitment to product expertise backed up by personal service. This level of commitment is only possible when each and every one of our employees truly believes their role in the company makes a difference. This ultimately helps us achieve our vision of protecting the American workforce.
What makes current or potential customers choose you over your competitors?
HiVis Supply is hyper focused on the HVSA product category, so we have a selection of products second to none. The breadth of our offering extends well beyond simple high visibility, but also recognizes the expanding needs of the American work force to also include protective apparel for other hazards (i.e., seasonal temperatures, working at heights, electrical hazards, etc), while still maintaining worker visibility.
What goals does the company have moving forward?
We hope to implement new software/technology to improve service levels to our customers, expand our footprint of product warehouse location(s) to provide faster delivery service, and further develop product offering to stay aligned with new safety standards and the growing demand of the U.S. labor force.

HiVis Supply, a Summit Safety, LLC. Company, established in 2007, is the leading online retailer of high visibility safety gear and apparel. We have just started to rebrand our company and are excited to share this moment with our customers, followers, partners and especially our employees. We want to take this exciting time to let everyone know we stand by the core principles of making the workplace a safe (and visible) environment. Additionally, have decided to add a little spin to the logo adding Bigfoot to the mix, except this version of BigFoot is HiVis Supply’s new brand advocate, icon and mascot named HiVis Hank! Bigfoot’s ironic reputation for being an elusive but noticeable character was the perfect symbol to represent our company and we like to think of HiVis Hank as our pal. Our company slogan, “Prepare To Be Seen,” is representative of our new look, new feel and new adventure that begins on Monday, August 28, 2017 (our new logo release date). We hope you’ll join us in celebrating this exciting time.
HAVE YOU MET HIVIS HANK?
As BigFoot, HiVis Hank has an elusive behavior and extreme camouflaging abilities. However, his selection of high visibility apparel helps him Prepare To Be Seen and Stay Safe to avoid unfortunate accidents when he chooses to step out in the lime light. We’re proud to say he’s chosen HiVis Supply for all his HiVis needs and we’re officially bringing him on board as our brand ambassador!
HiVis Hank learned the importance of ANSI 107 standards by monitoring workers from a distance. By partnering up with HiVis Supply, he’s able to gain more insight into the safety industry and lead by example. In some cases, even educate audiences online via the team at HiVis Supply.
HiVis Supply is extremely excited to have HiVis Hank join our team. Together, we will help educate the American workforce on how to stay safe and be seen on the job.
No longer will you have to search the deepest, darkest corners of the remote forest. You can spot HiVis Hank on hivissupply.com, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (@hivissupply). Join the conversation online using #hivishank, #preparetobeseen and #hivislife.
