Our Mission

Protecting People through Expertise, Manufacturing Excellence & Unique Service

Lakeland Protects People. It’s what we do. Our products are used every day in a wide variety of industries and applications throughout the world. Used to ensure workers stay safe from harm by hazards including chemicals, flames and heat.


Protecting People effectively requires a high level of Expertise. The expertise in Lakeland is sourced in several decades’ history – along with employees having long years of experience - in the industry. Lakeland was a founder member of the first company in the world to manufacture protective coveralls from extruded polymer fibre nonwovens, and it remains at the forefront of the protection of workers involved in hazardous situations throughout the world.

Manufacturing Excellence is also a necessity if people are to be protected effectively. For Lakeland quality is Factor Number 1. Lakeland protective clothing is produced to the highest specifications under ISO 9000 and Module D of PPE Regulation (EU)2016/425 quality control procedures. Users of Lakeland clothing know it as synonymous with quality protection.

Unique service, means stocks held in every regional centre globally and by our many partner distributors, to ensure our users have the right protective clothing where they need it, when they need it. And as well as the main office and distribution centre near Kingston upon Hull in the United Kingdom the company also has a distribution warehouse near Warsaw in Poland to better served the growing number of Eastern European customers.

Lakeland in Europe

Lakeland Europe was the company’s first major sales venture outside North America. Registered as a UK subsidiary in August 2002, sales have continued to grow through a growing professional sales team working with an expanding network of key partner safety distributors based in most European countries.


The European business is based near Kingston upon Hull in Yorkshire, UK in a purpose-built warehouse and office and with local, daily, overnight ferry connections with continental Europe. The warehouse in Poland enables rapid distribution of product throughout the European continent. Larger customers can also receive container shipments direct from any of our manufacturing facilities in Asia.

Lakeland also work with some of the best safety equipment and clothing distributors in Europe, many of whom hold comprehensive, local stocks of Lakeland’s extensive range

“If all you have is a hammer… …everything looks like a nail”.

Lakeland product ranges offer more choice with standard, premium, bespoke and composite options. Lakeland’s extensive range allows selection of the best tool for the job which means users are not only better protected, but also that comfort is maximised and cost is minimised.


Innovations such as Cool Suit coveralls and Pyrolon secondary FR garments provide users with unique options for better combinations of multi-hazard protection and protection with comfort. Whilst our “Super-B” style garment developed especially for the European market and featuring a unique combination of features offers garments which fit better and are more comfortable and more durable.

Know Your Maker…

Unlike many “manufacturers” in the PPE industry, Lakeland owns its own global manufacturing base and our key products are always made by us. So control of production planning, quality and despatch remains primarily in-house and is not subject to the conflicting demands of contractors supplying conflicting customers…

We Design, We Develop, We Make, We Deliver.
