Companies showcase PPE available for offshore and marine environments

World-leading manufacturers of offshore wind and maritime PPE will collaborate in Hull later this month at a Meet the Manufacturers event, organised by workwear and PPE company ComtecInt along with specialist training provider HOTA.

More than 25 of the organisations’ national and international suppliers, who will explain the features of their products, and gain feedback and ideas from end users to inform future development.

The free event will take place at HOTA’s training facilities on Malmo Road, on June 30 from 10am until 3pm, with outdoor demonstrations of PPE starting at 11am, weather permitting.

Jonathan Isaac, director of ComtecInt, said that the idea was to help people understand the range of highly specialist products available to protect staff working in hostile offshore environments. “This is not a sales pitch and is obligation free,” he said. “It is a unique opportunity to see the breadth of innovative solutions for the offshore wind and maritime sectors all in one place.

“As a re-supplier, I see this event as being beneficial to my customers and the manufacturers. It provides a clear opportunity to discuss past experiences and requirements and will contribute to informing the next generation of niche products which could take safety to the next level.”

Karen Shepherd, chief executive at HOTA, said: “We have worked with ComtecInt for many years and the last Meet the Manufacturer event in 2019 was a huge success. This latest event will showcase our excellent training facilities to top personnel of renewables organisations.”

ComtecInt’s Hull-based UK business has gained a national reputation for its bespoke services to the offshore wind sector, which comprises both supply and testing of safety wear products as well as branded online web shops for customers to easily manage supply of workwear and PPE to staff.

The company recently moved to larger premises at Base Business Space on Chamberlain Road in response increased demand for services, new contracts in offshore wind and to allow for future growth. It started in Hull in 2016 and has a long-established parent company in Denmark.

Manufacturers taking part are Mascot, Bolle, Tranemo, Blaklader, Sievi, Petzl, Ejendals, Skylotec, Aerohealthcare, KASK, Ergodyne, 3M, Tusk, Heightec, Ursuit/Mullion, Spinlock, DMM, Rockfall, Kansas Fristads, Torque Solutions, Ruth Lee, Talking Headsets, Marlow Rope, Ferno and Cresto
