Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls with New Pig

As the leading international brand for managing leaks, drips, spills and other liquid messes, PIG products are used at facilities in more than 100 countries on all seven continents. The company’s dedication to innovative solutions, environmental responsibility and keeping customers happy drives growth into new opportunities and emerging markets like the slips, trips and falls industry. New Pig was founded — and is still headquartered — in Tipton, Pennsylvania.
