In the early 1950's, Magid began selling Edmont and Best brand gloves and Magid Glove Manufacturing Co. set off on the distribution adventure of a lifetime. Throughout the next four decades, over 400 glove and safety product manufacturing companies teamed up with Magid to distribute their products.
Cohen helped to create a business employing over 450 people. Under his guidance and expertise, Magid developed and currently manufacturers hundreds of new products.
A 20-year Magid veteran remembers, "Dave always took the time to answer questions, share a story and teach me everything he knew."
Dave's son, Adam, accepted this award on behalf of his father, who died in 1994, at a ceremony held this month in conjunction with Safety Week 2002 at the Keystone Resort & Conference Center in Keystone, Colo.
