Arco, the safety specialist, has announced a new three-year contract to supply PPE, workwear and workplace safety products to defence contractor BAE Systems.

This contract cements a long-standing partnership between the two companies.

With many of BAE’s employees working in high hazard environments, Arco provides a dedicated expert team of people who understand the risks they face and can provide advice and guidance on product selection. An on-site dedicated Trade Counter has also been established at BAE Systems’ Portsmouth facility, giving employees the flexibility of trying and selecting equipment as and when it is required.

Jon Coneybeare, of BAE Systems says: “Our long term partnership has helped to deliver a consistent approach across the company in the selection, implementation and review of PPE requirements. Our employees can be confident the kit they are using is right for the environment they are working in. We can be confident that they represent good value for money and meet our stringent ethical and environmental guidelines.”
