New JSP Hard Hats are amazing

WOW!!! I received some samples of the new JSP hard hats from Robert Dunne of D.T. Cores & Company. I appreciate manufacturers that are forward thinking and can take a traditional item to a completely new level. It’s a modular system that allows buyers to design a hard hat to meet their specific work environment or needs. After I received and used the new JSP hard hat in the field for a few days, my traditional one got retired to the dumpster. I enjoy recommending a product when it impresses me the way one has. If you would like more information, you can find Robert’s LinkedIn profile and contact info at http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=20895973&locale=en_US&trk=tyah&trkInfo=tas%3Arobert%20dunne%2Cidx%3A1-1-1

Since the shop’s location is near the main road, I want to make sure that everyone is safe during the work. I can’t afford any accident like people getting injured.
