Building great things takes trust. Trust in talent. Trust in skills. Trust in tools. Since 1893, industrial workers, retailers, hobbyists and distributors have trusted Boss Manufacturing to deliver the safety wear and support they need for every situation.


Our story began in 1890s Kewanee, Illinois, when a farmer, frustrated by the challenges of husking corn, combined a leather strap and a metal hook to create the Perkins Boss Husker. This simple invention led to the establishment of the Perkins Husker Company, which became Boss Manufacturing in 1893. Boss built its reputation by responding to the needs of local farmers, replacing their cloth work mittens with high-quality work gloves.


Boss gloves have been shipped all over the world. They even went to the South Pole with Admiral Byrd. But we haven’t forgotten our roots, even after 120 years of growth. Although we donated our original office building on West First Street to Kewanee’s First Baptist Church, our company is still headquartered in Kewanee, with distribution centers and sales teams throughout the United States and Canada.

Today, Boss continues to respond to the urgent needs of our customers. We keep up with emerging technologies so that we can continue to offer innovative glove designs for changing work environments. As the oldest glove company in the United States, we’ve developed the infrastructure, inventory and relationships we need to ensure our customers and partners always have everything they need to succeed — as soon as they need it.
