Guardhat Doubles Revenue as Companies Prioritize ESG, Worker Safety Investments
Guardhat, a pioneer of end-to-end connected worker solutions, announced it doubled revenue in 2021, year-over-year, and ended the year with over $30M in orders under contract. Industrial organizations sought its unified platform to keep frontline workers safe and connected.

In 2021, Guardhat expanded its relationship with Siemens, beyond using the SIMATIC RTLS (Real Time Location Services) in Guardhat devices, with a co-deployment in Singapore. Additionally, Guardhat partnered with domain expert integrator CBT (CB Technologies), global safety solutions provider United Safety, and joined the Deloitte Smart Factory @ Wichita initiative to further expand sales, deployment, and support for customers.
