FRANKLIN PARK, IL Cortina Safety Products Group and Skipper Limited recently announced they have reached an agreement to partner together in marketing the innovative SkipperTM product line throughout North America.

“We are delighted to partner with such a forward thinking organization such as Cortina," said Alan Bentley, Skipper Limited managing director. "Since entering the market it has been clear that the Skipper range has really captured the interests of the health and safety community and now is the right time to strengthen our local presence with a proven specialist in the safety sector. We are looking forward to jointly delivering solutions that make a real difference to North American safety practice.”

The comprehensive and versatile Skipper range allows organizations to deliver high levels of safety and compliance regardless of the operating environment. Whether it’s attaching a 30-foot barrier to a magnetic surface, adding lights and signage or a waste bin to a tiled wall, the Skipper product portfolio has the solution required to get the job done.

“The Cortina/Skipper partnership is a natural extension to our current facilities safety offering of  Lamba System, Trailblazer, Trail Boss, Quadra-Flex Grip N Go and PLASTX Barrier Systems," said Cortina vice president John Pappas. "Skipper represents the level of quality and ingenuity that compliments the products we already manufacture and supply throughout the NAFTA market."

The Skipper product line, which encompasses several unique safety solutions, will be released later in May as part of Cortina's Spring 2016 Facilities offering. The offering will highlight the Skipper line, as well as the Cortina Safety Products Lamba System and expanded product customization, including signage, branding and customized messaging.
