Blackline Safety this week announced a four-year contract with a “major U.S. upstream energy company” headquartered in Texas.
The contract, valued at nearly $3 million, will see the unnamed energy company acquire from Blackline over 800 G7c cloud-connected wearable safety devices, 40 EXO cloud-connected area monitors, and 75 G7 Docks.
Blackline’s G7 personal gas detectors and EXO area gas monitors—built for extreme conditions—provide layers of protection to ensure a critical lifeline during an emergency.
“The customer evaluated Blackline’s connected safety devices in comparison to products from their long-term supplier,” said Sean Stinson, Chief Growth Officer of Blackline Safety. “It took less than a week for G7c to stand out for its broad connectivity range, and the ability to see where their lone workers might be in imminent danger so they can make sure their people are safe.”
The decision to upgrade was driven by the company’s dedication to safety and need to better protect their workers by ensuring consistent, reliable cellular coverage across a vast geographic area, according to a statement from Blackline.
“The company was also impressed with the EXO area monitor’s ability to monitor rigs, tank batteries, and wellsites during repair and maintenance operations,” added Stinson. “With no power, Wi-Fi, or infrastructure requirements, EXO’s drop-and-go setup is exactly what they were looking for.”
This new deal provides protection for over 800 workers.
“We unseat the competition because Blackline products set the standard for the safest lone worker solution on the market,” Stinson said. “We’ve innovated a stagnant industry and elevated the bar to keep workers safer than they have ever been.”
Founded in 2004, Blackline Safety provides wearable devices in more than 100 countries. Armed with cellular and satellite connectivity, Blackline provides a lifeline to tens of thousands of people, having reported over 225 billion data-points and initiated over seven million emergency alerts.
The company recently recorded its 27th consecutive quarter of revenue growth as it embarks on a path to profitability in 2024.
Last year, Blackline expanded its manufacturing capacity in Alberta. The firm’s expanded manufacturing area now spans 12,000 square feet.
