About SCS - Experts in the Workplace, Experts in the Work Zone

History

SCS began in business on April 15, 1986 (tax day) in Wheat Ridge, Colorado in a 2,700 square foot facility providing traffic safety supplies and construction safety equipment. We have since grown into a full line regional and national distributor of personal, industrial, utility, work-zone traffic control, and fleet traffic safety products with a main facility in Denver, Colorado of 24,800 square feet with an additional sales/stocking location in Rifle, Colorado.

SCS offers many value added services such as Just-in-Time delivery, a dedicated Stock on Hand Program, Procurement Pro, etc. These are detailed in the associated Value Added Services tab. 

The reason for the history, continuity, and performance of this company, as well as its dominant strength, remains the loyal, dedicated, and resourceful people who work here.

 

MBE/DBE Program and Involvement

Since its inception, Safety and Construction Supply Inc. has been actively involved with the progress and development of minority business. To that end we have served on boards, exhibited at minority business fairs (local and national), role-modeled, etc. We are certified as a small Business/disadvantaged business by the NMSDC (National Minority Supplier Development Council- Mountain/Plains Council), as well as the State of Colorado, Regional Transportation District (RTD), and many additional agencies and corporations. In this era of corporate ownership and control, Safety and Construction Supply Inc. remains Colorado owned and operated. 

Going Green Program

SCS has partnered with Independent Power Systems (IPS) to "go green" by installing a rooftop solar/electric system at our location. This state of the art photovoltaic system produces 66,000 kilowatt (kW) hours per year which provides 100% of our company's electrical consumption as well as putting electricity back into the electrical grid. This amounts to 1,980,000 kWh over 30 years. Each of these solar-generated kilowatt hours is equivalent to one pound of coal not burned. 

Thank You for doing business with SCS!
