June 19, 2015 – Capital Safety announced it has acquired Python Safety Inc., a Woodstock, Ga.-based company that provides “dropped-object prevention solutions” for tools and equipment.

“This acquisition is a natural extension for us and in line with our continued commitment to bringing workers home safely,” said Stephen Oswald, Capital Safety’s CEO. “Struck-by falling objects is a leading cause of injury for workers and Python Safety’s portfolio of products are designed to prevent tools and equipment from falling. This deal enables us to bring a broader range of solutions to our customer base and helps them keep their employees safe.”

Mark Caldwell, CEO of Python Safety, added, “As a combined organization, we will be able to leverage Capital Safety’s global organization and distribution channels with our core strength in drop prevention to broaden our reach and bring even more innovative solutions to a larger customer base. It will also allow us a better opportunity to expand the definition of fall protection to include tools and equipment.”
