Bishopsgate advised the shareholders on the disposal of Microgard Limited, a global leader in chemical protective clothing employing over 750 people across companies based in Hull, Xiamen (China) and Leverkusen (Germany) to Ansell Corp.

Founded in 1975, Microgard is a leading manufacturer and supplier of chemical protective clothing with a strong track record of introducing new technology and designs to the market to improve wearer protection and comfort. They have sales in over 75 countries and a world class manufacturing facility in Xiamen, China. Microgard has grown rapidly, primarily in EMEA and APAC.

"This acquisition is another critical step in building the Ansell body protection business as part of the Industrial Global Business Unit,” says Magnus Nicolin, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director at Ansell. “Microgard’s innovative range of chemical clothing for Industrial, Chemical, Oil & Gas, and Life Science customers complements our previous acquisitions, including Trellchem high-end chemical protective clothing from Trelleborg Protective Products, High Five entry-level disposable clothing and Onguard chemical protective footwear from Barriersafe Solutions International.

Together with our current chemical protective glove range, we now have a world-class portfolio of chemical protection solutions, leveraging our strong global footprint and Ansell Guardian™ solution selling capabilities to help customers improve protection and productivity in a wide-range of end user verticals.”
