Stroud Safety Announces New Ownership

Stroud Safety, the safety equipment manufacturer serving the drag racing industry for 30 years, has announced new ownership.

Tommy Cunningham is taking over as owner of Stroud Safety after founder Bob Stroud announced his retirement. Cunningham is a driver who has been involved in motorsports, particularly drag racing, for most of his life.

“As someone who’s been in the industry for quite some time, I’ve long known the integrity of the Stroud name,” Cunningham said. “The quality of products they supply is second to none, and I’ve always been a fan of the work they’ve done over the years to improve the safety of not just the motorsports industry, but other industries as well.”

Bob Stroud founded Stroud Safety in 1989. Throughout the years, Stroud Safety has sought to create industry-leading safety products such as seatbelts, window nets, fire suits, drag chutes, fire suppression systems and more.

Stroud Safety has since launched Stroud Industrial Safety Solutions to design and manufacture high quality, innovative and proven safety equipment to create safer work environments in other industries. This product line meets or exceeds all regulatory requirements and helps to provide enhanced protection for employees and equipment in a variety of applications.

Stroud will stay involved with the business in a consulting role.

“You can expect the same high-quality products Stroud Safety has always offered from the same staff who’ve worked diligently to pave the way for driver safety. I look forward to continuing that tradition,” Cunningham stated.
