Ansell Offers Ansell Guardian to Assist Manufacturers in Achieving Profitability

RED BANK, New Jersey - Expert at adapting new technologies to solutions that make customers more productive, Ansell introduces Ansell GuardianSM , a cost-savings and profitability improvement process provided as a service to Ansell customers.

"Ansell understands like no other company that performance and profitability go hand in hand," said Mike Kimberley, director, strategic account development for Ansell. According to Kimberley, that is why Ansell developed Ansell Guardian. Putting customers' needs at the forefront of the company's effort to achieve excellence in safety solutions, the Ansell Guardian program operates within the following maxims:

Employee safety can NOT be compromised; PPE cost reductions must be balanced against application and operational safety needs.

To remain competitive, businesses need new ways to identify and report significant cost reductions in safety related expenditures.

Price reductions don't actually impact the bottom line; less expensive product solutions never save enough money to balance the increased costs of insurance or injuries.

Delivered by the efficiency experts at Ansell, Ansell GuardianSM is a framework for rapid, sustainable and improved operational results in seven key practices related to Personal Protection Equipment (PPE):

o Cost performance - practices that maximize product performance to meet work application requirements
