Protective Industrial Products Inc was founded in 1984, where it began as a manufacturer of cotton lisle gloves for the inspection and handling of small parts. Since then, the demand for robust, cost-effective gloves has grown, and the company continued to expand throughout the 90s and early 2000s. By 2009, PIP USA was a $100m company, offering a broad range of protective clothing and hi-vis garments.

In 2011, PIP forayed into the PPE market and expanded its range of eye protection and head protection products. By 2017, PIP was a global leader in hand protection products, and in 2021 stands as a $660m entity with more than 21 locations across the globe.
