More Info on Bullard


The spirit of innovation and collaboration

Bullard traces its heritage back to 1898 in San Francisco where Edward Dickinson Bullard supplied essential equipment to gold and copper miners. His son, E.W. Bullard, returned from World War I, and began a relentless pursuit to understand his customers and the problems they faced working in dangerous mines. In 1919, the Hard Boiled® “hard hat”was invented, giving homage to his doughboy army helmet. This innovative design and approach to problem solving represents the spirit of innovation and collaboration that forms the foundation of Bullard today.

In step with our customers

The Hard Boiled® hard hat grew exponentially in popularity, leading to the development of the first Bullard fire helmet, which provided head protection to a broader market. As Bullard’s quest in understanding and protecting customers grew, the Company continued to help solve their problems, protecting them while in dangerous environments. Bullard went on to work closely with Joseph B Strauss, engineer of the Golden Gate Bridge to adapt Bullard hats to protect bridge workers. This customer intimacy further led to the design of innovative supplied-air respiratory solutions to protect the lungs of steelworkers blasting the Golden Gate Bridge.

Innovation: Our legacy and our future

Bullard has a rich history in solving customer problems in innovative ways, enabling these customers to have long, healthy, and productive lives. This legacy that began with the invention of the hard hat, continued through the 1930s with our supplied-air respirators and our first fire helmet, and propelled through to our powered air[1]purifying respirators and thermal imagers. Each of these safety-focused, customer[1]centric products have been and continue to be designed for the experts in the industries Bullard serves. By helping keep workers safe in Infrastructure, Energy, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Healthcare, Emergency Responder roles, and many others, Bullard stays at the forefront of safety in the workplace.
