Welcome to Needlers, the food industry specialist.
We’re proud to be the UK’s leading supplier of PPE, safety and hygiene products to the food manufacturing industry.
With customers of all sizes in almost every food sector, our success is based on exceptional customer service, a tailored supply chain and an extensive, well priced product list..
Here’s a brief introduction to the benefits enjoyed by Needlers’ customers:
Our ranges continually evolve. We stock the biggest brands in the business, including Kimberly-Clark, Vikan, Dunlop, 3M and Honeywell.
We have also developed our own product ranges which include our own label Reldeen; a practical value range of gloves, earplugs and footwear and Pro-Fit; a quality line of products which are ‘better by design’.
Over the next year we will be extending both these ranges and bringing our customers even more tailored product solutions.
We go to great lengths to quality monitor all of our products, some of which are sourced from the UK, and some from Europe and the Far East, allowing us to offer competitive pricing without compromising on performance.
