Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman Tours California Safe Manufacturing Facility

Visits gun and home safes company to see for herself what's right about California business

    SAN BERNARDINO, CA, March 13, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Republican candidate for governor and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman took time out of her busy schedule to tour the Kendall Drive manufacturing plant of Cannon Safe, Inc. on March 1. Good news vis-a-vis California businesses has been rare in recent years, but sales of Cannon products have been booming: so much so that the number of employees has increased 40% just since the first of the year. The company now boasts 200 employees in California alone, and 500 worldwide.

When asked about the secrets to the company's success when so many others are struggling, Cannon president Aaron Baker replied: "Our people are what make us successful. Plus, we are a recognized leader in the industry; our name is well-known; and the public requests our products from retailers." "More people than ever own guns and want to keep them in a safe place, especially when there are children or grandchildren in the house. They've also discovered that home safes are not just for guns: they're great for storing important documents, valuable photographs, jewelry, and even prescription medications. Many of our customers own three or more separate safes."

After touring Cannon Safe's manufacturing facilities and warehouse, Ms. Whitman took the time to speak with administration staff as well. Says Baker: "She was very gracious, was really interested in what our employees had to say, and listened to their concerns about the business climate in California."

About Cannon Safe, Inc.: Cannon Safe, headquartered in San Bernardino California, has been the industry leader in its field since 1965. It originally began as a metal fabrication company known as Astro-Fab and successfully grew and expanded into a multi-million dollar gun and home safe company.
