Libra Industries of Michigan, Inc. was founded in Jackson, Michigan in 1969, combining personal safety with environmental integrity to provide glove cleaning, restoration and recycling services to manufacturers. Because of their expertise in the field Libra expanded to also distribute gloves, safety products and other personal protective equipment (PPE).
Over the next 30 years, both aspects of the business continued to grow consistently, leading to an expansion of Libra’s service area throughout Michigan, as well as to the states of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Ohio. More floor space was needed to house new equipment and compensate for the increase in clients and orders. Instead of moving to a larger warehouse, Libra built additions to the original warehouse, maintaining a loyal connection to Jackson.
As the largest glove cleaning and restoration operation in the country, Libra continues to move forward and expand to new markets while maintaining a balanced focus on personal safety, industrial product offerings, uniforms and environmental integrity
