However, there's more to him then meets the eye.
The original company was founded in 1974 by Hilliard Crews and was originally known as the Memphis Glove Company. The timing was ideal thanks to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970. Companies were looking for ways to protect employees and make operations safer.
Hilliard Crews had two brothers, who joined the PPE market, and by 1981, a new company called Crews Safety Glasses was founded.
In 1984, River City Garments was established to provide protective clothing, and each brother ran a separate PPE company in the United States.
With all three companies eventually ranked in the top five in their respected categories in the United States it was time to consolidate into one brand:
MCR Safety was born!

You see, the original three companies that consolidated to form the MCR Safety brand you recognize today, the three headed animal represents these three companies.
Three companies now share one heart and soul thus creating the iconic brand.
