Twister Safe designs, manufactures, and installs quality and tested storm shelters, and safe rooms that can be installed in new or existing construction. No need to demolish and rebuild from scratch!
We have revolutionized storm safety by providing your families and employees peace of mind, by preparing for the what-ifs. Our products can be installed in residential homes and commercial businesses for both interior and exterior fittings.
In 2004, father-son team Enos and Jeremy Davis saw a need for handicap accessible, interior storm safety that was affordable and easy to install in new or existing buildings. Enos and Jeremy merged their knowledge of steel fabrication, along with national research and testing, to create a safe room strong enough to withstand the 7th deadliest tornado on record. This was the EF-5 tornado that wiped out Joplin, MO on May 22, 2011.
Prior to the Joplin Tornado, Twister Safe was the only above-ground manufacturer in the surrounding 100-mile radius. To better serve you, we have expanded from a one-person shop to a 20-plus person, 8,000 square-foot manufacturing facility still located in our hometown of Neosho, MO.
Having many safe rooms gave our neighbors greater confidence in above-ground storm safety that is great for everyone. People who previously had nowhere to go due to building restrictions can now trust our systems!
The Davis Family
Enos Davis - President and CEO
A skilled tool-and-die maker, Enos owned his shop for more than 30 years, engineering and building specialized equipment still used today. With his father, Alonzo Davis, Enos milked cows and grain-farmed until serving in Vietnam. He returned home in 1968 to his wife, Linda Davis, to raise two children. They now have three grandchildren.
Linda Davis - Controller
Lifelong area resident, Linda Davis, graduated from Joplin High School and married Enos Davis in 1968, raising two kids. Linda returned to the accounting field in 1984, then opened a bookkeeping and tax service in 1994.
Jeremy Davis - Plant Manager
Longtime resident, Jeremy Davis, graduated from Franklin Technical’s welding program and started J&D Fabrication, Inc. in 2003. After welding doors and benches for the once popular Inground Storm Shelter, Jeremy and his father, Enos Davis, saw a need in their hometown for an interior, handicap accessible, safe room. This is how our company was born!
An affordable option, perfect for students, workshops, and empty nesters. Our work bench models have survived the Joplin Tornado and provide a smaller yet very safe and strong place to go in the event of a major severe weather out break, ARE YOU TWISTER SAFE?
