Avon’s plans for the region include localising production and engaging in the transfer of technologies.

Avon Protection is seeking to build on its footprint in the Middle East, providing hundreds of thousands of pieces of equipment to regional partners.

As a key partner to the UAE, Avon has delivered over 100,000 air purifying respirators or APRs to the emirates alone since 2017.

Building on this, the UK protective equipment company seeks new opportunities in the UAE alongside its partner, Abu Dhabi-based International Golden Group (IGG).

In support of the UAE’s efforts to develop a more sovereign defence industrial base, Avon is exploring the localisation of production and assembly of its equipment via technology transfers.
