Manufacturing of products for personal protection started humbly in the 1960s with the production of raincoats – made from rubber compounds. A unique ability to develop, maintain and guarantee the quality of all materials evolved during the 1980s into the brand TRELLCHEM® range of personal protective products.

Today, Ansell Protective Solutions is relied on to provide personal protection for professionals in hazardous working conditions all around the world.
