National Safety Apparel (NSA), a leading manufacturer of protective clothing, has announced the acquisition of San Antonio, TX-based, Forum-Direct. This acquisition strengthens NSA’s commitment to manufacturing American-made products. Forum-Direct manufactures advanced outerwear solutions for the law enforcement market.

Together, NSA and Forum will build on this legacy by focusing on innovation and expanding production to bring new solutions to the market. Forum will continue manufacturing operations at its plant in San Antonio, Texas, NSA said in a media statement.

“We are very excited to have Forum-Direct join NSA. Forum is a great strategic fit for NSA on several levels. They have an excellent reputation in the law enforcement market, and their 100+ highly trained sewing operators will allow us to expand our USA-made production,” NSA CEO, Chuck Grossman, said.

“All of us at Forum-Direct look forward to joining NSA. Forum has always strived to create products that protect from the elements while providing comfort for the demands of everyday law enforcement needs. NSA’s vast resources and expertise will strengthen Forum’s ability to continue providing garments to those who protect us for many years to come,” Tom McKown, Forum-Direct president and CEO, said.
