BACA Celebrates European Expansion
19 February 2018

Great things are happening at BACA! We're now celebrating our successful European expansion with the acquisition of Actipro in France.

By acquiring Actipro, a safety wear business in France, we're pleased to be expanding our presence in Europe. The French team will assist us in distributing our exclusive Veltuff ranges of premium protective wear.

New and existing customers in France will now have access to the Veltuff range of safety clothing and footwear, which we'll distribute direct all the way from our UK headquarters in Northampton.

BACA’s Ben Calder, our European Sales Director, said: “The drive and desire for BACA to continue its successful growth commercially continues to gain momentum. The acquisition of Actipro will increase our production by 10% and will lead to the creation of new jobs here in the UK in the near future. 

“The French market can now not only benefit from our Veltuff ranges but also our work wear personalisation services and garment branding. This latest development is the next step in our long term business plan to expand throughout Europe.”

The BACA group are pleased to continue pioneering protective products via Veltuff, the comprehensive collection of high performance, safety solutions including safety clothing, footwear, PPE equipment and gloves.
