PPE (personal protective equipment) eyewear specialist Bollé Safety has announced that it will enter a partnership with Welsh medical company RotoMedical which will see the firm become its exclusive PPE eyewear manufacturer in the UK.

RotoMedical, which is part of the Rototherm Group, will produce over three million items monthly at its Port Talbot manufacturing base, with production beginning at the start of June. The company’s partnership with Bollé will involve the distribution of PPE eyewear throughout the UK and Ireland as well as exports to global healthcare markets.

The deal continues Rototherm’s expansion into the medical and life sciences sector. The group has traditionally manufactured industrial measuring equipment, but has expanded to produce PPE for health workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. This diversification, under the RotoMedical brand, has been helped by the support of Life Sciences Hub Wales.

Commenting on the partnership, Bollé Safety Vice-President of Sales Ian Walbeoff said: “At Bollé Safety, our mission has always been to protect the eyesight of healthcare professionals across the world, even in the most challenging environments, ensuring they are able to safely work on the frontline.”

“At the heart of our brand is a genuine desire to continually innovate and use the best available technology to create the highest quality products, and our partnership with RotoMedical will play a key role in achieving this.”

Rototherm Group Business Development Director Tarkan Conger added: “The partnership with Bollé will enable us to build on our industrial expertise and innovation as we embed ourselves in the life sciences sector, expanding into new manufacturing capabilities and markets.”
