About the Company
ShuBee®, a Macon, GA, based company, supplies a wide variety of service industries with top quality shoe protection. Founded in 2000, ShuBee® provides service professionals with high quality products made specifically for tough jobs. Owner and CEO, Steve Stone, saw a need for personal protection products made specifically for his technicians when he owned his own plumbing and HVAC company. He and his brother, Mann, decided the need was great enough and ShuBee® started out of their mother’s garage. ShuBee® prides itself on being the professional product provider supplying shoe protection made specifically for the service industry to make sure you can do your job better!
