Globe Reveals the Future of Turnout Gear and Supports Farrell Fund at FDIC International 2016

April 05, 2016

Globe Manufacturing Company will reveal the future of turnout gear ‒ ATHLETIX™ – at FDIC International 2016. Unlike any turnout gear today, it is the product of blue-sky thinking and clean-slate design. Enabled by breakthrough fabrics and materials, ATHLETIX™ will help you to “Stretch Your Capabilities.”

At FDIC, Globe will demonstrate the unprecedented firefighter range of unrestricted motion that is possible with the new ATHLETIX™ turnout gear during exciting live exhibitions in the booth.

“At Globe, we are proud of our long history of innovation. It’s in our DNA,” said Rob Freese, senior vice president of marketing at Globe Manufacturing Company. “Our new ATHLETIX™ turnout gear was inspired by interviews with hundreds of firefighters plus collaboration with suppliers who take the same ‘voice of the customer’ approach to product development and have the same passion for firefighter safety. I invite everyone to try the new gear for themselves. I can promise you that it will change the way you think about turnout gear forever.”

Globe will continue its partnership with the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund at the Globe booth. Try the new gear for yourself on the demonstration platform and Globe will make a donation to the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund in your name.

Terry Farrell was a father, a husband, a brother, and a dedicated firefighter who lost his life on September 11, 2001, during the World Trade Center attack. Among the 343 heroes who died that day, he was in Tower Two when it collapsed. A decorated member of Rescue 4/FDNY and chief of the Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department, Terry was a devoted firefighter who embodied the spirit of courage and giving. The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was established in his memory to assist firefighters and families across the nation with financial, educational and medical support, and to provide equipment donations for fire departments in need.

Also at FDIC, Globe will sponsor the International Networking Event and International Lounge and encourages all of its partners who keep first responders safe all over the world to take advantage of these resources.

The nation’s largest firefighter training conference and exhibition is being held April 18-23 at the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Globe’s booth (#2522) is located in Hall D at the Indiana Convention Center.
