"This transaction is the ideal scenario to ensure the growth and continuity of Superior Safety's operations," declared Superior Safety president, Doug Coppin. “We are more prepared than ever to fulfil our mission, which is to ensure the occupational safety of Canadian workers.” .  Indeed, current shareholders of Superior Safety will continue on as shareholders and managers at SPI Health and Safety.
