Auto Racing and safety icon, Jim Deist, passed away on March 9, 2009.
For over 50 years, Jim dedicated his life to improving the safety of all types of motorsports. He was an innovator, a dedicated racer, and a friend to all. Jim made everyone feel as if they were family, and he wanted everyone to be safe and survive in these deadly sports that we all love so much.
All of us here at Deist Safety are determined to continue Jim's legacy through our commitment to safety, quality, and reliablity. Most of our staff has been working alongside Jim for 20 years, and some for over 30 years. And although we have lost our leader, you can always count on Deist Safety to provide the best in service, manufacturing, and design. Please be assured, our customers' safety will always be our top priority. It is this reason why Deist Safety has been #1 in safety for 50 years! We plan to keep it that way.

To all our Loyal Patrons,
For over fifty years, Deist Safety has been the premier choice for quality safety equipment in the field of motorsports. Founded by Jim and Marian Deist, the Los Angeles based company was built upon core values of integrity and ingenuity when creating products to meet the demands of the industry.
Deist Safety has always been, and continues to be, a family oriented business; and with new leadership from their grandchildren, the company strives to retain the values Jim had impressed upon his family throughout his lifetime.
We are pleased and excited to announce new and upcoming changes to our company. With a background in engineering and special effects, coupled with a passion for racing instilled since childhood, Jason Hansen will be starting where Jim had left off. Sandy Andres will be applying her skills and experience to bring about more efficient and structured leadership to provide our clients with the best service possible. Our goal will be to create new and innovative products to fit the needs of our clients with today's technology while continuing to instill the tradition and service of the past.
We believe that both our name and reputation are based on the legacy Jim had instilled within the business, and we believe in honoring that. We hope to serve your needs and we invite you to keep a watch for us in the near future!
