The store was established in 1919 by Ross Gottlieb's Grandfather and Grandmother. He sold various sundries and items. Over the next 25 years, the offering transitioned to clothing for men and women. After WWII, at the request of local Public Safety personnel, the store again changed into a full blown Public Safety clothing and equipment outlet. In 1988, Ross and Ilyse purchased the business and it has been expanding ever since. Security Uniforms is a third-generation family business that thrives on excellent service, personal connections with our customers, and a desire to learn and grow.

Why Choose Us?

“In towns across the country, the strongest sense of community is usually at the local coffee shop. In New Britain, it’s at Security Uniforms. To hear owner Ross Gottlieb speak about his clientele is to hear a man who is both devoted to serving and passionately respectful of the public service employees he comes in contact with every day. ”

I had to write to let you know that your employee, Jeannie Nieves is an amazing asset to your company.

The words “thank-you” are not nearly enough for what Jeannie and her crew did for us Monday morning – amazing! She’s a rock star and you guys are all so very professional, kind and courteous all the time, not only at times of extreme stress and urgency. I will write a formal note of thanks to all of you but I wanted to say thank you all very much for all your hard work and dedication, absolutely the best in the industry!

Chief William Barratt, Wolcott Volunteer Ambulance

I would like to thank you for the professionalism and courtesy that your team demonstrated in providing me with a uniform for the American Red Cross award ceremony. I was fortunate to be chosen for the 2006 New Haven County Red Cross Hero’s Award representing the Firefighters. My uniform fit perfectly and allowed me to represent the Fire Department and all the fine men and women of this great organization to the high standards that they deserve. Many attending the ceremony stated how nice the uniform looked and fit.
