Reading, PA—Elbeco Incorporated, an industry leading manufacturer of Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement and Postal uniforms announces the launch of its new Job Shirt.
A “sneak-peek” was offered in mid-April at the 2013 FDIC, in Indianapolis, Indiana, eliciting positive reviews from the majority of the attendees who stopped by the Elbeco Booth.
This product offers the natural comfort and protection against the cold of a job shirt with innovative features for equipment storage, functionality and performance.
Specifically, the Job Shirt offers significant upgrades in the form of long lasting shape and color retention, choice of Self or Twill collars and a host of tactical performance features to include a pocket with attached D-ring designed to secure keys and other valuables.
In addition, the Job Shirt can fit almost any individual body size/type and is augmented in the collar and elbows with our innovative Tek2 fabric that provides greater fluid repellency and durability in these high use areas.
The Job Shirt was designed after extensive research and testing in the field and has received very positive reviews from the initial test groups.
“What drove the Job Shirt’s development was the need in the marketplace for a great product at competitive price, supported by great service,” says David L. Lurio, President of Elbeco. Lurio continues by saying, “With over 1,000,000 fire safety personnel nationwide, we feel our new Job Shirt will be received quite well. In addition, we believe that in the future, Job Shirts will become more and more popular with Law Enforcement Agencies as well.”
The Job Shirt and other Elbeco products can be purchased through our nationwide network of Distribution Partners.
