An Employee-Owned Buyer

Preserve your legacy and make your employees owners

A Better Alternative

We know being an owner is hard work. You spend decades building your business, and your employees rely on you. Then, investors in suits and competitors walk in thinking they can just “buy you out,” without regard for your employees, culture, customers, and legacy. After going through these issues many times ourselves, we founded the Scientific Safety Alliance to solve this problem.

SSA provides a better alternative for owners than selling to private equity or private-equity-backed companies. We’re proudly 100% founder and employee owned (no outside investors), and offer a people-first approach. Owners create the ideal terms of their partnership, and SSA empowers their employees through equity ownership, partnership bonuses, better benefits, and regional promotion opportunities.
