When our customers choose an original uvex product, they know and expect it has been made in uvex. For uvex safety, the promise "made in uvex" means that we focus on our own production plants, of which many are in Germany or elsewhere in Europe. As a result, we have full control over the entire value creation chain — from a first product draft and initial development, throughout to production, and finally to sales.
Here are some of uvex safety's production facilities along with their current sustainability projects:
- PUR Waste Offensive – project to recycle and cut polyurethane waste
- Warehouse moved to separate location, thereby increasing production space
- Installation of a new production machine
- Construction of a new recycling centre in preparation for introduction of DIN EN ISO 14001
- Replacement of lighting in final assembly
- Installation of innovative flood cells for coating lenses
