Luke Halsey and Bryan Pitts are the new account executives for Key for Business, a newly created division of Key Industries, Inc.

The division was started this summer and has the ability to embroider or screen print clothing and other items.

“Key for Business is focused on working directly with businesses to provide quality workwear for the company and their employees,” Halsey said. ” We can provide work uniforms with the company logo on it, which, we do here in-house in our new embellishment center.”

The new embellishment machine produces a Fort Scott logo.

The advantage of being produced locally is the turn-around-time, Halsey said.

“We can do a project in a few days and (for a business) to send it off it would take about two weeks,” he said.

The division employees have the ability to embellish almost all of Key Industry garment items with either direct-to-garment printing or embroidery services, he said.

“We are offering company discount programs with no contract necessary, as we believe enough in our quality and services we won’t need to lock customers in,” Halsey said.

The company believes this feature will keep customers coming back, he said.

Although Halsey has been working at Key Industries for only a short time, Key has been in business for over 110 years and is known for making “The Nations Finest” workwear for the American worker. Halsey said.

The following is a list of what Key produces:

Regular workwear: work shorts, jeans/dungarees, work pants, T-shirts, polo shirts, and button-down work shirts.

The foyer of Key Industries displays some of the workwear the company is known for.


Outerwear: premium work coats/jackets, vests, sweatshirts, overalls/coveralls.


Specialty: High visibility items and fire-resistant apparel
