3M Acquires British Protective Clothing Maker

Dailys Ltd. was founded in 1993 and has grown significantly. It makes non-woven disposable clothing, mainly chemical protective coveralls, that bears the CE mark and conforms to EU Dir. 89/656/EEC - Use of PPE in the Workplace.

3M announced it has acquired Dailys Ltd., a British supplier of non-woven disposable protective clothing, for an undisclosed price. Julie Bushman, vice president and general manager for the 3M Occupational Health and Environmental Safety Division, said Dailys' "research and development capabilities, along with global reach, will help to expand and grow our business."

Dailys was founded in 1993 in North Wales and has grown significantly since then. It makes non-woven disposable clothing, mainly chemical protective coveralls, that bears the CE mark and conforms to EU Dir. 89/656/EEC - Use of PPE in the Workplace. Conforming products are classified in three categories according to their level of protection: CE Simple, Category 1, minimal risk; CE Intermediate, Category 2; and CE Complex, Category 3, risk of serious or mortal danger.

"Adding products from Dailys will accelerate our presence in disposable protective clothing not only in the U.K., but globally, as well," said Jim McSheffrey, managing director, 3M United Kingdom.

David Sallon, the founder and chairman of Dailys, said the two companies' cultures of innovation are a good fit. Dailys currently has 26 employees, according to 3M, and has its headquarters in Ellesmere Port, which is between Manchester and Liverpool.
