UNIGLOVES HAS bolstered its highly experienced team with the arrival of PPE specialist Karen Cresswell to help shape a new range of industrial workwear gloves for a mid-May launch in the UK.
Karen joins Unigloves having worked for over 20 years in the hand protection and wider PPE market, previously with glove company BM Polyco and also with UVEX dealing in head to toe PPE. Her arrival also marks the start of a wider expansion plan for Unigloves in the UK with the imminent launch of a new reusable industrial Nitrile safety gloves range.
“I’m delighted to become part of the Unigloves team and be back in a dedicated hand protection environment which I love. Having worked in the PPE sector for many years, gloves are definitely my “thing” which is why I am excited to be joining Unigloves and really looking forward to working with customers to help them with their hand protection and wider PPE challenges,” said Karen.
Unigloves sales director Paul Gibbons, says the arrival of Karen is a further addition to what is already a highly experienced hand protection team ahead of further company expansion.
“It’s fantastic to welcome Karen to Unigloves at a really exciting time in our continued growth and development,” said Paul. “We have a highly experienced team here at Unigloves, who between them have many decades of cross sector industrial hand protection knowledge which really adds value and support for our customers.
“We are also now one of the few dedicated hand protection manufacturers left in the market, which for our customers means they have the support of a growing international glove manufacturer with a highly knowledgeable, experienced team, specialist technical support and market leading hand protection solutions,” added Paul.
The last four years has seen increased UK and European growth for Unigloves across key sectors including manufacturing, automotive, engineering, healthcare, food and construction.
