This highly sought-after award is a mark of quality for British businesses. A seal of approval that speaks volumes about a company. For A-SAFE to win this award for the third time is testament to decades of hard work.
A-SAFE design and manufacture the most advanced industrial safety products in the world and have a long history of scientific development and engineering innovation. Established in 1984, A-SAFE invented the world’s first industrial strength polymer safety barrier. The company evolved from manufacturing polythene films, then using the waste from this manufacture to produce plastic cores, which led to the creation of polymer pallets and in 2001, the development of polymer safety barriers. Their customer-focused approach has seen their products continue to develop year-on-year, with the launch of 3rd generation polymer barriers in 2015 and bespoke solutions for workplaces in many industries. This revolutionary type of safety barrier is designed to flex, absorb impact forces, then reform to its original shape; a transformative milestone in the evolution of safety in the industrial workplace.
Their world-leading Innovation Centre in Halifax proudly recruits polymer physicists, design engineers, and electronics engineers; it is the humble birthplace of some of the most advanced polymer technology and cutting-edge safety engineering in the world. A-SAFE invest millions of pounds in custom-built machinery to ensure their quality and attention to detail is inherent throughout every element of the process. From research and development to design, testing and manufacture. The entire end-to-end process is owned and controlled at their HQ in the UK, before the final product is exported around the world. They have released next generation safety barriers with more technology, more engineering design, more safety features. The latest developments include electronic safety systems that go beyond protection, designed to detect, monitor and record damage. Exporting these innovations to six continents and driving global standards of workplace protection ever higher.
