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.
