An all-new strategic partnership between LHD Group and Vimpex brings together one of Europe’s foremost Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) manufacturers with one of the UK’s leading specialist suppliers of PPE and rescue equipment to form a powerful alliance that will deliver the highest levels of quality, service and protection for the UK’s fire-fighting services.
Vimpex’s managing director James Jones commented: “LHD’s enviable brand reputation for high quality PPE and product expertise across the UK, combined with our own established infrastructure capabilities, plus our expertise in sales, service and support, will bring new standards in product performance, delivery and support to the UK market. This partnership agreement is a real step forward for Vimpex as it will complete our ‘head-to-toe’ PPE solution for the UK’s Emergency Services teams operating across the public and private sectors.”
LHD Group’s chief operating officer Daniel von Chamier responded: “This strategic alliance between our two companies is the end result of our enhanced commitment to the UK market, building on recent successes to further develop a robust UK infrastructure in support of our high quality PPE apparel to ensure the health, safety and performance of the UK’s fire-fighting community.”
Spearheading the product offering will be LHD’s Kinetic Structural Firefighting Suit and Particulate Blocking Flash Hood, evidencing a critical element of quality and performance differentiation to challenge competitive markets. Weight-saving design, functional tailoring and state-of-the-art materials deliver a new level of protection and ergonomics in protective clothing for fire-fighting.
