The A-SAFE story is one of dedication, continuous progress and evolution. Our long record in polymer extrusion going back to the 1980s gives us scientific knowledge unmatched in the safety industry.
Noting our capacity to innovate and respecting our knowledge of advanced polymer technology, one of our clients came to us with a problem. Coca-Cola in Eritrea needed pallets for their product that were hardier yet more lightweight than what was commercially available. The material we developed for our plastic cores was the perfect solution.
By adapting our machinery, we created and patented the Rivlock pallet, supplying Coca-cola with approximately 10,000 custom polymer pallets.
Today, we have local subsidiaries in 15 countries and trusted partners in over 30 countries, with our business spanning six continents. Our products are used across many industries by the world’s largest international blue-chip companies; Coca-Cola, DHL, Toyota, Jaguar Land Rover, IBM, to name just a few. Despite the scale of our operation, we design and manufacture everything at our HQ in the UK, giving us complete control over quality, with extensive custom-built testing equipment that goes above and beyond industry standards.
The spirit of local enterprise is instilled in our global offices, with each having an intimate knowledge of their domestic market. This gives us the capacity to meet customer needs with a personal understanding; we maintain a “Global but Local” ethos, of which we are very proud.
One of our recent concerns has been addressing the lack of a Code of Practice for Safety Guardrails in workplace environments. With our passion and knowledge of the subject, we have set about rectifying this problem.
Working closely with the British Standards Institute (BSI), and drawing upon our network with the biggest blue-chip companies in the world, we pulled together an expert steering group. We then sponsored, and were the technical authors of PAS 13.
A new, and sorely needed, code of practice to be applied across all sectors and industries.
From polymer extrusion to design engineering, technology innovations to Codes of Practice. We’re proud to be world leaders in every aspect of workplace safety, globally and locally.
