The History of Hawkins

The late Richard Hawkins of Wolfeboro launched Hawkins Safety Equipment Company Inc., more than 50 years ago. Mr. Hawkins supplied safety equipment to businesses surrounding New England. His Mom, Bertha, was paramount during its inception. The hallmark of his business was based on the significance of quality customer service. In 2005, after Mr. Hawkins’ passing, his family sold the business to a loyal customer. Since then, you know us as Hawkins Safety Equipment Sales, LLC. We began our venture in Farmington, but in April 2013, we moved to a busier locale and a more modern facility on Route 125 in Barrington. We have settled in nicely and are thankful to see our existing customers return; as well as welcome the new faces we meet daily.
