THE TYNDALE STORY
Who We Are
At Tyndale, worker safety is the driving force behind each and every decision we make. We are committed to offering the best services, allowing you to focus on your professional responsibilities, and top products, that meet or exceed our own expectations of quality and industry safety standards.
During the 1970s fuel crisis, Tyndale’s founder, Dale Whittenberger, sent thousands of sweaters to a leading pharmaceutical company with many cold employees. When the sweaters arrived, one problem still remained – no one at the company had the time to deliver the sweaters to the employees. Dale personally traveled to the pharmaceutical site and distributed thousands of sweaters. After this experience, came the ‘aha!’ moment when he realized the value of offering a “Managed Apparel Program” to large corporations.
Tyndale was initially formed as a trusted, reliable safety supply company for large companies. In the late 1980’s, Dale learned that electric utility workers would soon be required to wear FR clothing. As a result, Tyndale began specializing in providing flame resistant (FR) clothing and became involved in the ASTM committee responsible for writing the worker safety standards. From there, Tyndale began tracking employee orders and offering services in addition to products. In fact, Tyndale became an early leader in developing and establishing Managed Apparel Programs as the industry benchmark. In 2004, Tyndale grew to a national scope, adding some of the largest utilities in the country as our happy customers.
In 2007, majority ownership of Tyndale transferred from Dale to Gail Whittenberger, rising to become the company’s Chief Executive Officer. At that time, Tyndale became a Certified Woman-Owned Business Enterprise, independently certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Tyndale's status as a WBE is a unique differentiator that we are proud of!
In 2014, Tyndale opened a second Distribution Center in Houston, TX – in addition to our Distribution Center near our headquarters in Pipersville, PA. Together, these facilities house our comprehensive FR inventory, managed by our state-of-the art inventory management systems and strategically stocked by our inventory planning team. Tyndale also has two factory stores, complementing our Distribution Center locations, in Williamsport, PA and Midland, TX.
Today, Tyndale remains a privately-held, family-owned business and has become a leading supplier of flame resistant clothing to the utilities, oil and gas market, and transportation sector while expanding into chemical manufacturing and NFPA 70E markets. We proudly deliver an unmatched level of product selection, industry expertise, and service. Through the years, Tyndale has cultivated the experience and knowledge necessary to achieve cutting-edge leadership in worker safety apparel.
