Louth, Lincolnshire, 2nd February 2015 – 
ProtectHear® today officially announced their strategic growth plan in order to cope with demand and expand the business. Known for innovation and leadership in the hearing protection equipment market, the Louth business has been busy making major changes that are leading to an extremely positive future.

The company manufacturers a range of personally moulded earplugs, designed to offer the highest degree of comfort whilst proving an effective acoustic barrier helping to prevent Noise Induced Hearing loss (NIHL) which is an important issue in industrial and manufacturing environments.  Clients include Network Rail, Weetabix, Kellogg’s, Phillips66 and Tata Steel UK.

Plans announced so far include a brand new cloud-based IT solution to streamline and integrate Sales, Marketing, Finance and Production, and a personnel growth strategy which has begun with the appointment of two new apprentices and an Area Sales Representative Richard Farnhill covering West Yorkshire.

Bonita Poole joins as an Apprentice in Credit Control, and Kieran Towse as Sales and Marketing Administration. Both 19 year old Apprentices are from the area and were sourced with the help of the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS).

The company has also sourced local resource with the help of the government funded Growth Accelerator scheme which makes it easier for businesses with the ambition, capability and capacity to improve and grow, as well as bringing in outside expertise in Marketing and Business Development.

Speaking about the plans, Managing Director Mick Whitaker said: “We have literally reviewed the entire business.  Our ethos has always been to look after our customers, and this won’t change; the people, process and technology developments have simply been made so that we can continue to delight our existing loyal customer base and manage enquiries from new clients. These are very exciting times and we look forward to making more announcements this year.”
