Earl Scott’s first company for the
manufacture of aviation components.

In the early 1940s, Scott builts critical aviation components for the British and American militaries, developing on-demand oxygen regulators and a walk-around, on-board oxygen system. With these, pilots could safety fly above 30,000 feet. In 1945, Scott develops the first Air Pak SCBA for firefighting. It soon becomes the keystone of the Scott offering and the prime example of Scott innovation.
Scott operates under Figgie International and, in collaboration with NASA, develops the first high-pressure SCBA. In 2001, Tyco purchases Scott Technologies, recognizing it as the leading manufacturer of life safety products for the firefighting and aviation markets.
Scott Technologies moves from Lancaster, NY, to Monroe, NC, and becomes Scott Health & Safety. In 2004-2005, Scott Aviation is sold and the instrumentation business is relocated to Monroe. All brands are then assembled under Scott Health & Safety, further strengthening the Scott portfolio.
