OPEC CBRNe Ltd is a UK (Larbert, Scotland) based designer and manufacturer of Level C CBRN Protection suits. It was established by OPEC Systems in 2017 to refine and improve the former Remploy technology, applying the latest leading edge materials and a range of advanced construction techniques to provide exciting new innovations in suit design.
OPEC CBRNe is immensely proud to partner with Haven Protective Technology Solutions (Haven PTS) to continue to provide this prestigious range of suits to the next generation of modern war fighters and first responders.
In 2014 Remploy’s Frontline CBRNe garment business was sold to Haven PTS, a flourishing social enterprise based in Scotland employing 90% disabled personnel. Many of the highly skilled former Remploy team moved across to Haven PTS thereby preserving this rich and proud British legacy of CBRNe suit expertise and its strong connection with social enterprise dating back to the 1940s.
In 2017, to assist in the manufacture and distribution of the Frontline range, Haven PTS teamed under exclusive licence with OPEC CBRNe. This collaboration delivers world leading CBRNe capability via the latest garment fabrication technologies and exciting innovations in design and material protection.
OPEC is delighted to be involved with Haven Protective Technology Solutions. Haven is a social enterprise providing employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities. Approximately 90 per cent of Haven’s workforce has a disability. The company provides meaningful employment and development opportunities for its entire workforce. Haven is part of Momentum, a leading not-for-profit organisation providing rehabilitation, training and care services for disabled and socially excluded people throughout the UK.
