Ansell is new to National Manufacturing Week, exhibiting for the first time at Sydney Olympic Park this year.
Ansell’s decision to participate this year was motivated by a desire to get an idea of the type of response the company received and brand perspective which would dictate a return next year.
It comes at a perfect time as Ansell recently released its new range of patented ActivArmr® construction gloves, designed for specific uses in the trades industry. The range comprises of HVAC gloves, Electrician gloves, Mason gloves, Plumber glove, Heavy Labourer glove and Carpenter glove.
"We focus on hand safety, especially since companies take their duty of care seriously," explains Mitchell Mackey, head of marketing at Ansell Industrial and New Verticals (Asia-Pacific).
Ansell’s latest offering is a world first, specifically designed for individual trades. Mackey compares the new range as if almost having a second skin, due to its breathable second skin dexterity which allows workers to complete their jobs without hindrance.
"It has been the result of an extensive R&D program, incorporating a similar technology as the current products," says Mackey.
"ActivArmr® provides a high level of cut protection, flexibility, dexterity and incorporates lightweight liners, all without compromising the ability to perform the task at hand."
