EAM Worldwide was founded by Samuel Oroshnik, who was an aviation enthusiast since his teenage years. As a general aviator, he took his passion for flying and turned it into a business to serve the unmet needs of the aviation industry. As a one-man shop, Oroshnik began by selling surplus safety equipment. Later, he designed and built his own life rafts and vests by hand. In addition to supplying high-quality safety equipment, Oroshnik later opened a repair station for CO2, oxygen, life rafts, life vests, and slides. Heralded as an indispensable resource to the aviation community, Oroshnik took his vision and built a business with trustworthy, reliable products.
