Who We Are

A family-run business started by a father and son in 1973, Zee in Burnsville, Minnesota is the most trusted name in First Aid and Safety in the Twin Cities and greater metro area. Three generations of our family now take pride in providing the service your business or your home needs to stay safe and healthy.

When Gil Mathews, pictured below, and his son, Chuck, started this company out of the family home in Burnsville, they were too tired to realize they were building something special. Chuck met his wife, Gail, here. Gail runs the office and provides first aid classes and certified CPR training to Zee customers, with 25 years of experience as an EMT. Gil's oldest son, Mike, is the operations manager, and two of his daughters, Kathleen and Lynda, run the warehouse, handle receivables, and support the sales reps from the office. Three of Gil's grandchildren also make their living providing first aid supplies and safety equipment to our community. One of his great-grandchildren does her distance learning at our office during these difficult times. 

As a Twin Cities local business, we see tremendous value in other locally run companies, large and small. We appreciate the services you bring to our community, and enjoy working with you. During the pandemic, we are rooting for you, and will do everything we can to provide you with what you need and work with your teams, so we can pull through this together.
