With hand protection solutions ranging from food handling to metal fabrication, Ansell provides personalised pre-sales consulting where a list of appropriate product choices can be generated by a sales person in a matter of minutes. For those industries wishing to carry out an in-depth audit of the protection needs of each workstation, the Ansell Guardian® consulting service helps to optimise references, reduce costs and improve worker acceptance and protection.  

"Continued innovation is a core element of our strategy", said Peter Dobbelsteijn, adding that "providing the confidence to workers to perform better, is the driving force behind our brand."

The Ansell booth is organised by industry sector including: machinery and equipment, automotive and transport, oil and gas, mining, food handling, life sciences, electronics and clean room, chemical environments, and building and construction. This makes it easy for visitors to the fair to immediately identify the newest innovations which pertain to their sector. The multi-lingual Ansell protection solutions team will be at the Ansell booth at A+A (Hall 6 Stand J39) to demonstrate all of the innovations to visitors between 5 and 8 November 2013.
