In the early 1960’s

Donovan Clarey served as a Volunteer Fireman for the Rochester Rural Fire Department in Minnesota when he decided to sell fire equipment and safety supplies as a part time job out of his garage.

Through his hard work and dedication to his customers, Donovan and his wife Delma established Clarey’s Safety Equipment, Inc. in 1968. Throughout the expansion of Donovan and Delma’s business, their children became interested and started getting involved in the operation and continue to be involved in Clarey’s today ensuring the same great customer service and quality products.

In the late 1980’s Clarey’s made a large transition

By adding first aid and industrial safety equipment and training on top of the fire equipment and safety supplies. In addition, Clarey’s also added high pressure, hydrostatic testing facility.

We take pride in our company and strive for the delivery of excellence in the products and services we provide to our customers. By being honest and ethical we strive to ensure our customers receive the best experience and knowledge in the products and services we are proud to provide.

We hope to continue the tradition started
by Donovan Clarey over 55 years ago.
