EXPO PROTECTION is the international event that brings all risk managements markets together. Professional and Industrial Risks, Security and Firefighting. Uvex and Heckel once again attended Expoprotection fair in Porte de Versailles from November 15-17 at their joint booth.
The focus for this year's trade fair was sustainability. This is because as a group of companies, our goal is to protect all our empoyees, customers and partners in the most complete sense - environmentally, socailly and financially. this is reflected in our sustainablility motto "protecting planet": a group-wide concept that redefines sustainability within the uvex group.
At our booth M31 in hall 1 there was not only our mission "protecting planet" to discover on all levels in the various product families of the uvex safety group and Heckel, but also our new safety shoes RUN-R Planet.
