Team Wendy was founded in 1997 by Cleveland-based entrepreneur Dan T. Moore as a memorial to his daughter Wendy, who passed away from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) following a snow-skiing accident. Since the company’s founding, Team Wendy has been largely focused on developing leading-edge products that serve to protect against serious and potentially life-threatening impact related injuries. Most notably, through its long-standing partnership with the U.S. Military and the National Industries for the Blind (NIB), Team Wendy has supplied our men and women in uniform with more than 5 million Zorbium® Action Pad (ZAP™) helmet pad systems since 2005. In 2012, the company launched the EXFIL™ Tactical Bump Helmet, marking Team Wendy’s return to the production of complete helmet systems.
Team Wendy also actively collaborates with world-class universities and organizations to better understand the causes behind TBI and to develop products that focus on addressing what actually occurs during impact. Leveraging our success protecting soldiers, our research and development initiatives continue to grow in numerous and important areas such as youth sports, where adequate protection continues to be lacking.
Team Wendy products are manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio. Our state-of-the-art testing, engineering and chemistry labs, as well as our 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, allow us constant, hands-on access to our products and materials. We employ a diverse staff of highly trained professionals who are all vital to our day-to-day operations. The company is certified to ISO-9001 with design (certificate 08.192.1).
At Team Wendy, We Innovate to Protect.
