Brussels, 26 November 2009. Ansell Healthcare, a global leader in barrier protective solutions, announces that it will launch a pair packs range of industrial protection gloves. Ten of the most performing Ansell gloves, formerly sold only in bulk, will be offered at retail level in pair packs as from January 2010.
"The 10 models do cover a variety of work needs and are particularly popular amongst PPE and industrial distributors, shopkeepers and specialised resellers in the building and construction industries and the OEM aftermarket", says Marcel Willems, Marketing Director Ansell Occupational Healthcare.
In analogy with the presentation of the gloves in Ansell's Protection Solutions Catalogue, the pair packs have a handy colour coding, thereby distinguishing gloves which provide 'Mechanical protection' from those offering 'Chemical protection' or 'Product protection'. Moreover, users can select the appropriate gloves very easily thanks to the industry and applications icons on the packaging.
The new pair packs are presented in a new distinctive packaging and are accompanied by a specially designed display fitting all retail store requirements. The pair packs with a multilingual instructions for use, label and leaflet allowing to select the right glove will be available from January 2010 onwards and go on sale in France, UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and the Benelux.
The glove models available in pair pack include:
- For mechanical protection
