EDC Protection is the market leader in France for personal protective equipment (PPE) designed to protect personnel working in extreme heat conditions.
Founded in 1935 in the heart of a steel region, the company began to specialise in the design and manufacture of PPE in 1989. For more than 30 years, the employees of EDC Protection have shared a common desire: deliver reliable, good-quality protection to professionals working in very demanding environments whilst preserving a French know-how that is recognised worldwide.
By opting for a merger in 2001 with the DMD FRANCE Group, a leading player in the European market for men’s work clothing, EDC Protection has acquired new investment, research, production and logistics capacities. The synergy between the companies within the Group means that we now offer the widest range of products in the field of work and protective clothes.
Since its creation, EDC PROTECTION has continued to develop, operate and innovate to become the emblematic French manufacturer of PPE against thermal risks.
Our activity has gradually turned towards exports, and this international position now puts in a position where we can spread our “Made in France” know-how beyond our borders.
