The Neese Difference

Neese Industries, in its over 60 year history, has grown to be one of the major manufacturers of industrial protective clothing and consumer rainwear.

The company was started by Cliff Neese Sr. who began cleaning and refinishing of work gloves from the local industrial plants.  After the initial success, the operation grew to the cleaning and refinishing of various types of protective clothing as well.  In the mid-1960’s, Neese Industries moved into the actual manufacturing of protective clothing for industrial use.  The expansion proved successful and later, in the early 70’s, Neese made the move to meet the demand for a wide range of consumer goods by introducing rainwear for motorcyclists, sailing, hunting, fishing, horsemen, and every day work that required protection from nature’s elements.  The uniform division soon followed and began manufacturing protective wear for postal workers, law enforcement officers, and security personnel.  NeeseWearFR was added to meet the demand for quality flame resistant coveralls and protective garments.

The company maintains its headquarters and primary product distribution center in Gonzales, Louisiana.  The objective of the distribution location is to have stock items available for same day or next day shipment.  This distribution arrangement allows product to reach its destination throughout the contiguous 48 states within five business days via standard shipping services.  We operate with a clear and concise mission and vision.

Cliff Neese Sr. passed away in 1994, but his legacy of excellence lives on in the company’s commitment to creating, manufacturing, and supplying quality products to meet and exceed the needs of its various distributors and end users.  After over sixty successful years of creative innovation, direction, and change, Neese Industries is recognized as a manufacturer that sets an uncompromisingly high standard for goods and services.
