our story

Built-in technology stat icon


The company began its quest in 2007 when its' founding fathers grew weary of injuring their knees while working from day-to-day. The safety products marketplace did not have a solution other than traditional kneepad products with elastic straps that are very uncomfortable and heavy to wear.

the knee pad pants

THRIVE invented the industry's first kneepad work pants with permanently-installed pads that could be laundered and that never required maintenance. Full-time knee protection was our goal and we accomplished it. We're now considered the leader in this work safety workwear category.
