For over 40 years, RPB Safety has worked to provide the world’s industrial workers with comfortable, high-quality respiratory protection. From humble beginnings in Christchurch, New Zealand, in the 1970s, we expanded into Australia in 1982. In 1998, we entered the U.S. market, while continuing to expand into other countries around the world and, by 2006, RPB had opened a warehouse in Los Angeles to expedite shipping to our U.S. customers.
To better serve our U.S. and international markets, we relocated our global headquarters to a purpose-built manufacturing facility in Detroit, in 2012 – from which all RPB products are proudly manufactured. Most recently, RPB opened a warehouse in Belgium to service the European markets faster and easier than ever before. And with two key international offices in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, RPB has grown to become a globally trusted name in the respiratory protection market. RPB’s mission is to protect you for life’s best moments by creating the world’s best industrial respirators that advance your safety and increase your productivity. We believe that comfort is essential to both safety and productivity, so these principles guide our research and development department.
The abrasive blasting industry was where RPB began, and our extensive learnings from this industry have enabled us to transfer our expertise to serve other industries as well. As a result, we have greatly expanded our product line with exciting innovations in the welding/fabrication, painting, pharmaceutical, and general engineering and safety industries.
Along with our quality products, RPB believes in working with quality distributors. To provide our customers with the best service possible, we are particular about who we allow to become an official RPB distributor. We choose companies that are proactive and focus on providing the best possible solutions. As technology and industry progress, RPB continues to innovate and provide revolutionary solutions to the market, ensuring you make it home safely at the end of the day.
