Vero Beach, FL, July 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Protective Outfitters, Inc. is the provider of a hand held safety tool called the Ampel Probe. The Ampel Probe was originally designed for use by those in law enforcement, first responders and any profession where sharps injuries, such as needle sticks, and their associated bloodbourne pathogen risks, like HIV/Aids and Hepatitis B and C, are a concern. Over the years since its inception, the Ampel Probe has been found to have many additional uses in a wide variety of industries. Just a few examples are electrical, petroleum and animal control.
On Monday July 16th, Protective Outfitters, Inc. announced that they have partnered with Patrol Store/NSI Ltd. in the United Kingdom to be their exclusive reseller for the Ampel Probe in the UK, Ireland and Europe. According to Protective Outfitters, Inc. President and CEO Graham McKinnon, "The Ampel
Probe is already known in the UK, Ireland and parts of Europe. However, with our operations based here in the US, it does present significant marketing challenges for us on that side of the pond." McKinnon goes on to say, "Teaming up with Patrol Store was an easy decision. Patrol Store is comprised of quality people who are former law enforcement and military personnel. They truly understand the dangers professionals face on a daily basis and see the value that the Ampel Probe presents to its users. It is that sort of belief that will help catapult our market for the Ampel Probe to the next level."
Patrol Store offers a wide range of professional products geared towards those in law enforcement and the military. Although based in the United Kingdom, Patrols Store is currently expanding its reach into the European market place and felt the Ampel Probe was a product that offered a unique approach to a problem that has been typically combated by using various styles of gloves to provide protection. While both Patrol Store and Protective Outfitters believe utilizing protective gloves is a step in the right direction, they both realize that gloves alone are not enough, especially with it comes to battling the threat of needle sticks and the deadly diseases they may harbor. The Ampel Probe, when used in conjunction with proper technique, provides advanced protection that gloves simply cannot offer.
