Prevent, now known as PPE Factory, has been active in the development of new concepts since 2007 to protect people who work under the most extreme conditions at, for example, float ovens. Much research has been carried out into the conditions under which people work. This has resulted in a completely new workwear line with unique properties. Our products have better climatic properties than current conventional workwear because they breathe better, are twice as light and are, moreover, washable.
Prevent was awarded the European Innowiz Award 2011 from AGC Group (active in glass) for this development. The new insulating workwear line is now being sold globally and is a great success.
PPE Factory produces its products at three sites. The headquarters can be found in Culemborg, the Netherlands. Production sites in Rumania and the Czech Republic are also used.
PPE Factory works in close partnership with Centexbel, the knowledge centre for the textile industry in Belgium, for testing and certifying products.
PPE Factory invests continuously into the further development of current and new products.
