In 2011, the Industrial Safety sector generated a total of €332 million in turnover and currently employs nine specialists in the goods sectors of foot protection, clothing, personal protective equipment, eye protection, breathing protection, ear protection, helmets and hand protection.
All important European suppliers in the goods sectors mentioned above are listed as contract suppliers in the Industrial Safety sector. The market proportion which is the basis for successful work is just as large.
As well as the Industrial Safety expert group with 48 companies throughout Germany and the FAVORIT Group, the Industrial Safety sector works very intensively and cooperatively with ASSI TecLog AG and Kompetenz4.
Through the consolidation of these strengths, the sector is very successful and perfectly placed for the future, for all necessary challenges that the industry and trade place on the association headquarters.
The Industrial Safety expert group is a union of specialised companies, which are dedicated to the themes of industrial safety and occupational safety in their full breadth and scope. The group adjusts to the constantly increasing demands of the industry with innovative concepts and system solutions. The expert group was founded in 1993 with 13 members and now has Germany-wide coverage with a total of 48 members. Further information at www.arbeitsschutz-fk.de.
The FAVORIT partners are perfectly established in their region as flexible and efficient suppliers for industrial safety products. The cooperation with leading specialist retailers throughout the whole of Germany leads to synergies, which benefit customers in industry, council-run companies and the trade. Through this cooperation, the FAVORIT group realises a new service quality because processes are standardised for all partners as a matter of course. Further information at www.favorit-arbeitsschutz.de.
Currently, the Industrial Safety sector works with three trade brands (FORMAT, FORTIS, E-TOP). The FORMAT trade brand is available exclusively to the Industrial Safety expert group and is very specialised in terms of the depth and breadth of the range. With FORTIS Arbeitsschutz, we offer a trade brand range with which E/D/E member companies are able to differentiate themselves clearly from the competition. A 24-hour delivery service and attractive prices for industrial B2B are par for the course.
In total, 3500 products are currently stocked in bulk in the PPE sector. A turnover of almost €17 million is made here. 60 suppliers and two trade brands (E-TOP for the retail trade, FORTIS for the industrial B2B sector) ensure a complete range.
The Industrial Safety expert group catalogue with a circulation of 90,000 copies and about 13,000 products from 65 contract suppliers has developed into the ultimate industry catalogue and is an important service for affiliated traders. With 10 alternating versions (with the use of all alternating versions 640 catalogue pages), every trader can display their own distribution channels.
