Manufacturing expertise

We offer personal protective equipment from head to toe, with manufacturing expertise in all areas – and we invite you to judge our expertise.

We place the highest requirements on ourselves

Almost 80 % of our value added is generated in our own plants. These production plants are home to the latest technology, a huge wealth of experience and a passionate desire for product innovation, which is in many ways pioneering.

Strict quality management ensures that we meet the high requirements we have set ourselves and our products – all our plants are certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2008.

Our own product development and a tight network of strategic partners help us to continuously create innovative ideas. Innovations – just as much as existing products – have to prove themselves in our own test laboratories. Only when a product exceeds all the requirements of the relevant safety standard does it earn the right to the uvex name.

Manufacturing expertise in protective eyewear

Safety spectacles

At our site in Fürth, we combine everything from safety spectacles and full vision goggles to prescription and laser protection goggles. In this unique competence centre for protective eyewear, we develop and produce, in accordance with strict quality standards, premium coating systems to enhance the properties of our eyewear – and to create high-performance premium products.

laservision – over 30 years of experience in laser protection

Manufacturing competence in ear defenders

Hearing protection

The uvex range of hearing protection includes earplugs, banded ear defenders, earmuffs (safety headphones) and otoplastics. SwedSafe in Höör, Sweden, is our ultra-modern manufacturing plant for hearing protection with its own research and development department all under the same roof. SwedSafe has become one of the leading manufacturers of hearing protection in only a few years since it was established, thanks to its successful network of partnerships with known hearing protection specialists and its collaboration with testing facilities across the world. SwedSafe also sets benchmarks for environmental protection and sustainability. SwedSafe regularly sets the bar just that little bit higher in hearing protection thanks to its innovative drive and its own polyurethane foam that it developed in-house.

Value follows innovation

As a specialist in foam processing, SwedSafe continuously monitors and optimises earplugs and their material composition in terms of cell structures and homogeneity. This achieves optimal reset times and the best possible contact pressure. The many patents relating to earplugs that have been filed are proof of SwedSafe's innovative drive.

Manufacturing expertise in safety gloves

Safety gloves

UVEX SAFETY Gloves GmbH & Co. KG based in Lüneburg, Germany, is the competence centre for safety gloves. Production on-site ensures a high technical standard and short paths from manufacturer to user. Modern production and development, an in-house sewing department and an associated laboratory with extensive testing and application technology work hand in hand here. From developing innovative yarn blends to knitting and processing new coating formulations, we cover all processes in-house.

Value follows innovation

Our sophisticated innovation process has earned us (while still under the name of Profas) the title of "Top 100 Innovator of the Year 2013" in category B (50 to 250 employees) in the German top 100 company comparison – a title we could not be prouder of!
