about us

Our focus IS on protecting people

For almost 70 years, we have been developing and manufacturing high quality protective garments that protect people from a wide range of hazards at the workplace. We are experienced PPE specialists and take many steps to ensure that every product provides the quality you expect.

This is how our unique  HB collections are created that make our customers feel safe and comfortable. This is what we stand for with our brand promise.


There is no more personal protection than the turtle's shell. Over many millions of years, it has always successfully adapted to new conditions and dangers.

And so is our protective clothing!

That is why our trademark has accompanied us for many decades. With our products, we offer our customers desirable safety and solutions they can rely on at all times.
