UK Ambassador Visit to APSLIT Factory in Taurage, Lithuania

UK Ambassador to Lithuania, Brian Olley, recently visited Ansell Protective Solutions Lithuania UAB (APSLIT), Ansell’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Taurage Industrial Park in Lithuania. The Ambassador, accompanied by political and trade representatives from the UK Embassy, was welcomed by an Ansell delegation led by Juozas Čičiūnas, General Manager of the APSLIT facility.

Established in 2006, the Taurage plant specializes in a broad range of best-in-class multi-hazard chemical protection, including gastight and splash proof solutions. Top level chemical protection suits - certified to the toughest global standards and designed for first response professionals - are manufactured at APSLIT, in addition to specialist diving suits.

Following a presentation, which identified the global health crisis caused by exposure to toxic chemicals, the Ambassador was able to also explore in person Ansell’s comprehensive multi-hazard range. With one billion workers exposed to harmful chemicals globally, work related cancer cases are one of the biggest health problems. In Europe alone, these cases lead to approximately 80,000 fatalities each year. Ansell’s hand and body protection portfolio manufactured at Taurage, includes AlphaTec chemical bodysuits and the AlphaTec gloves range which offer cut and chemical protection.

General Manager Juozas Čičiūnas says, “As a result of his personal tour of the factory, the Ambassador was able to appreciate the scale of chemical risk faced by workers around the world, and how Ansell’s products help in protecting them. He was also made aware of how our facility in Lithuania is part of our unique global footprint, and representative of Ansell’s strategic plan to avoid concentration risk in one country. This means we can serve global accounts more efficiently, increase scale in each product type when necessary, and better protect supply chains.”
