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.
