Bullard traces its heritage back to 1898 in San Francisco where Edward Dickinson Bullard supplied essential equipment to gold and copper miners. His son, E.W. Bullard, returned from World War I and began a relentless pursuit to understand his customers and the problems they faced working in dangerous mines. In 1919, the Hard Boiled® "hard hat" was invented, giving homage to his doughboy army helmet. This innovative design and approach to problem-solving represent the spirit of innovation and collaboration that forms the foundation of Bullard today.
