Handanhy was founded over 30 years ago. In that time, we have grown from a small business to a leading manufacturer of disposable respirator masks, reusable respirators, filters, medical masks, air filter media, coveralls, and surgical gowns. As a market leading organisation, our products are used in over 40 countries throughout Europe, The Americas, Asia and the Middle East.
Handanhy combines a no compromise approach to quality with a knowledgeable and dependable service. We use high-specification machines that are operated by skilled and experienced professionals. This enables us to manufacture all the components to the highest possible standard, and in turn, provide you with an efficient service and affordable respiratory protection. We use state-of-the-art test instruments and perform strict quality audits to ensure that we provide quality you can rely on – after all, your safety is our business.
We have been producing raw materials since 1989; ensuring the highest quality and safety possible. Over time, we started to develop full respirators, using our expertise to apply quality control at each phase of the process. That allows us to create a finished product that is perfect on every level. We have 30 years of experience and pride ourselves on creating the best quality products available. In fact, you’ve probably already used our products. Other brands are so impressed with our quality and safety that they rebrand our respirators (OEM).
Unlike many other companies, we also produce lots of very specific products to accommodate every need. We have seven series of respirators to fit all shapes and sizes of faces and are proud to be the leaders in innovation and technology within the respiratory protection market.
