ECCO Safety Group
For more than four decades, ECCO Safety Group (ESG) has maintained a strong focus on customer satisfaction and service. “That is absolutely engrained in the DNA of the company,” CEO Chris Marshall says.
Based in Boise, Idaho, ESG manufactures safety lighting and audible warning equipment for commercial, emergency and industrial applications. The company’s history goes back to 1972, when the brothers Carl and Ed Peterson developed backup alarms for vehicles.
The two ultimately went their separate ways, forming two different brands, Carl with ECCO, Ed with Preco. “That’s how they carried on until 2008, when ECCO bought the Preco backup alarm business,” Marshall says.
