Merit Apparel Company Inc. is a family-owned and operated business celebrating 29 years of business, with 25 of those years supplying the industry with Merit Helmets, a division of our business created to provide customers with the MSA Gallet Aviation DOI Certified Helmet.
First, we want to personally thank each and every customer and company that we have had the privilege to work with over the past 29 years. Without you, we would not be where we are today.
Over the past 25 years, we have diversified our product line to meet our worldwide customers’ needs, including BOSE ANR, CEP, BluTooth, Talk Thru, NVG-ready components, respirators, touchscreen nomex gloves, as well as “thinsulate” touchscreen nomex gloves and much more.
One of the keys to our success and growth is our attention to detail to customize the helmet to meet each of our customer’s needs. If you want to buy one helmet or 500 helmets, you will receive the same high level of information and service we are known for.
Purchasing a helmet is an expensive, important, and typically a long-term commitment, so educating you first about the various options that will work best in your environment is our first job.
Once we have determined your needs, the second most important goal is your fit. Our helmets are a long-term investment since their shelf life exceeds our competition. Your Merit MSA helmet can last you more than 15 years as we have had helmets out there for two decades+. Unfortunately, today we have found many helmet users wearing helmets that are not comfortable. We have customers wearing our helmets for 12 or more hours a day. If your helmet is uncomfortable, you are miserable at the end of the day; this is why we have designed and instituted a helmet fitting system that assures our customers’ comfort even on long days.
Most Merit customers fly for a living, so selling you a helmet is only the first step in our relationship. We are here to support you for as long as you own your helmet and thereafter. We keep the most extensive inventory of parts worldwide, so we can ship parts quickly to keep you flying. Our company philosophy is to provide you with the safest product with ultimate satisfaction. Merit has emerged as ‘world renowned’ for our customer service and support in the aviation industry.
Merit is constantly evaluating new products to improve and expand our product line. If you want to purchase a helmet or refurb an existing MSA helmet, please get in touch with us and join the ever-growing family of Happy Heads!
