uvex at A+A – #protectingplanet for greater sustainability

uvex was once again attending the A+A 2021 from October 26 - 29. Our focus for this year’s trade fair was sustainability. This is because as a group of companies, our goal is to protect all our employees, customers and partners in the most complete sense – environmentally, socially and financially. This is reflected in our sustainability motto “protecting planet”: a group-wide concept that redefines sustainability within the uvex group.

This motto accompanied us at A+A 2021 as we presented exclusive product highlights as well as introducing new products with an emphasis on sustainability. We also offered comprehensive information on the uvex #protectingplanet mission, interviews with our management team and product managers and inspiring insights into our new products.

To make sure you don't miss any of the trade fair highlights, we are presenting our highlight products here and have also collected the most important information and best impressions of the trade fair for you.
