Imperial Tobacco Group Plc is the world’s fourth-largest international cigarette company measured by market, and the world’s largest producer of cigars, fine-cut tobacco and tobacco papers. It has 51 factories worldwide and its products are sold in over 160 countries. Imperial Tobacco has many brands made in their factories such as Davidoff, L&B, JPS etc. The company are using ProtectHear® in their factory based in Nottingham and we have been supplying Imperial Tobacco for over 8 years.

David Barber, their Occupational Health Advisor said: “About 500 of our employees use the product on the shop floor which is a fairly noisy environment. ProtectHear® are very easy to fit and to use. They are durable and the fact that they are personally moulded adds to the engagement of the employee which is key in occupational health. The customer service from ProtectHear® is excellent”.

Initially Imperial Tobacco had a ‘Try Before you Buy‘ in 2008, which helped them reached their decision of implementing ProtectHear® throughout the whole factory. With a lifespan of 5 years our product was the best option when compared to disposables – not only for cost savings but also for employee health. As David mentioned, the fact that they are personal provides an enhanced sense of ownership to the employee, providing them with a new innovative product that they can call their own.
