Haztec’s Commitment to Safety and Quality

Haztec, the flagship brand of Hazchem Safety, is renowned for its dedication to safety and quality. With a strong emphasis on meeting industry standards and regulations, Haztec workwear ensures maximum protection for workers in hazardous environments

In August 2008, one of our clients challenged us to create fire-resistant workwear that would surpass the comfort level of existing market leading products. They required the use of Inherent FR Fabrics, which maintain their fire-resistant properties even after washing. To add to the challenge, they set an extremely tight deadline of just eight weeks for delivery!

Faced with a daunting task, we recognised the opportunity this presented, as the client was offering an order for 350 drivers. It was in response to this challenge that the HAZTEC brand was born. We successfully met the client’s expectations regarding delivery time, product quality, and CE compliance for the workwear and to this day, the company continues to trust and wear our garments.
