They say that time flies when youre having fun! That's why for over a quarter century, DiVal Safety has had the time of its life making friends and providing exceptional customer service that is second to none.It all began in the late 1970's when two hard working entrepreneurs, Chuck Vallone and Joe DiMaggio, rolled up their sleeves and began selling gloves. In 1977, sales of gloves and rain suits literally moved from the trunk of their car, to Chuck & Joes basement. A couple years later, they moved operations to a storefront strategically located near the mouth of the Buffalo Rapid Transit project. Complimentary fresh donuts & hot coffee were provided to construction workers that visited the store -- just one little example of the DiVal way of doing "Whatever it Takes" to satisfy customers. This company attitude has become a significant part of the corporate culture of DiVal ever since.As the store continued to evolve, it quickly became a reputable contractor sales house. During the 1980's, the company shifted gears to become one of the dominant Northeast distributors of asbestos abatement supplies.In the early 1990's, DiVal further expanded its operations to include an innovative retail establishment called The Home Safety Store. Since then, the company has experienced tremendous growth. Current President CJ Vallone (Chuck's son) and the DiVal team have been instrumental in creating several different product and service divisions. In addition to DiVals contractor, industrial and janitorial equipment business, the company has grown its family of services to include the following divisions: DiVal Safety Compliance, The Safety Outlet, ShoeMobile, Equipment Rental & Repair, Fire & EMS Supplies, Portable & Fixed Fire Repair Services, First Aid Services, and Safety Incentive Award/Advertising Specialties.DiVal has been doing business in Buffalo, New York since the legendary Blizzard of 77. They have taken the safety world by storm ever since. Today, DiVal is a premier safety distributor in the United States. Its the people of DiVal that make the difference. Their extraordinary commitment to do "Whatever it Takes" to keep you safe and productive on the job & off is unsurpassed. Yes, time does fly when youre having fun.
