| London Stock Exchange: AVON
Avon Rubber Plc manufactures and designs respiratory protection products for defense, first responder and industrial users, together with the manufacture of a range of polymer based products for the dairy and defense industries. The company operates its business in two segments: Protection & defense and Dairy. The Protection & defense segment consists of respiratory products. The main products are respirators or gas masks (product names FM12, M50, C50, ST53 and M53) together with a range of spares and accessories; the CE approved emergency hood (EH20) and NIOSH approved emergency hood (NH15); and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) (primarily the Viking product range). The respirators and escape hoods offer breathing protection to varying degrees against CBRN threats while the SCBA equipment offers protection in oxygen depleted environments. It also manufactures the consumable filters used by these products and thermal imaging camera equipment. The Dairy segment designs, manufactures and sells products used in the automated milking process, primarily rubber ware such as liners and tubing. These consumable products come into direct contact with the cow and are replaced regularly to ensure product hygiene, animal welfare and to maximize milk quality. These products are manufactured for major Original Equipment Manufacturers as well as being sold through distributors under their own Milkrite brand. Avon Rubber was founded in 1885 and is headquartered in Melksham, the United Kingdom.
