About Tillman

In 1928, the John Tillman Co. was formed to provide personal protection solutions for welders and other industrial workers. Founded in the Southern California "oil district" of Signal Hill, Tillman quickly rose to be known as the top manufacturer of quality welding gloves and leather protective garments. Tillman’s 750, the original "pipeliner’s" glove is still in the product line to this day! What was once a handful of products now encompasses over 1,000 different items.

Timeless Quality and Value

Whenever welders get together, the talk ultimately turns into a past welding job and the fun and the challenges of that job.  Opinions differ of whose job was the most challenging, and sometimes the jobs become more challenging as the story is told, but one item they agree on again and again are their Tillman’s. 

Tillman has stood the test of time.  For over 90 years Tillman® has been the brand leader in welding and industrial protective safety products.  From our legendary 750 and 850 Elkskin stick welding gloves to our innovative TrueFit® performance handling gloves, Tillman has always incorporated the best materials and unsurpassed craftsmanship to deliver products that outperform day after day.

If it ain’t broke… Don’t fix it

Sometimes you just leave well enough alone.  Little has changed from the original 750 born in 1928.  Sure, the fit and materials have improved as technology has evolved.  But at the core, the 750 is the same.    

The 750 is the foundation for every stick welding glove Tillman produces.  Today there are variants of the 750 in Gold Elk (850) and Black Elk (875) Deerskin (855), Pigskin (495), Cowhide (650), Nomex® Lined 850N, Kevlar® lined 1080K and more.  Over 30 stick gloves have been born from the original Tillman 750.    

Continuing the Tradition

For over 90 years, Tillman has developed a product line that encompasses over 1,000 different products.  Tillman is a leader in Stick, MIG, TIG gloves; drivers, work, TrueFit (mechanics style) gloves, specialty, high heat clothing, gloves (leather, lightweight flame retardant, high heat), welding blankets, curtains/screens and accessories for welders and industry.

Today Tillman brings our best; with tomorrow bringing new materials and improvements that will result in better protective solutions keeping you safe and taking you home at the end of your shift.

Over 90 years, Tillman has earned a reputation for durability, reliability and comfort for some of the toughest users in America.
