Teaming up for safety
OSH Expo Africa 2012, held from June 19 to 21 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, saw various safety-focused companies strutting their stuff – with Leo Garments and Glolite International combining their strengths and exhibiting under the united banner of The Rama Group.
Leo Garments, established in January 1983, has grown over the last 29 years as a manufacturer and supplier of protective clothing and products for the safety, medical, promotional and uniform industries. The company has held ISO 9001:2008 accreditation for the past 13 years, and aims to retain it well into the future.
Its proudly South African product range includes all types of rain wear for adults and children, chemical suits and overalls, shaft sinker suits, waders, blood- and fat-resistant garments, anoraks, reflective clothing, kidney belts, reflective tapes, air-fed suits and customised garments as requested by customers. The company constantly upgrades its production machines to maximise efficiencies, and uses high-quality sealing and welding machines to ensure product quality and adherence to the most stringent safety regulations.
Glolite International holds the same standard. This company was established in 1994, and in the past 15 years has developed its strength as a wholesale supplier of manufactured, imported and locally-produced products for the personal, construction, traffic and general safety industries.
Glolite’s product range includes plastic mesh fencing, barrier tapes, traffic cones, solar-powered warning lights and road studs, revolving construction vehicle lights, convex mirrors, super-sound emergency horns, plastic chains and poles.
The Rama Group is ideally located in the central business district of Durban, with its administration and manufacturing plant situated in King Dinizulu (formerly Berea) Road, providing easy access for suppliers, courier services and employees. It is a member of the Durban Chamber of Commerce and The Southern African Protective Equipment Marketing Association.
