THE SITUATION

Air France, 4th worldwide air transporter is a group made of 4 major activities:

  • Transportation of passengers
  • Freight transportation
  • Maintenance and engineering
  • Services via Air France Consulting

6 000 employees are working for 2 main divisions in maintenance:

  • Direction Générale Industrielle (industrial maintenance)
  • DEA (planes maintenance)

Those 6 000 employees work indoor as well as outdoor. They are in contact with greasy environments, wet environments, they work for all kinds of maintenance duties.
They have been wearing a leather glove for years, the FC27J, Lebon.

This glove led to some inconvenience :

  • A quality which was not constant
  • A lack of mechanical protection
  • Gloves tearing
  • Lack of tactility when wet
THE SOLUTION

We met Air France purchasing and HSE departments one year ago... We presented several gloves, among them the SHOWA 376R.

The Air France team admitted it presented many good features :

  • Tear resistance
  • Water and oil resistance
  • ¾ coated
  • Good tactility

THE OUTCOME

After many tests among several AF divisions,it was agreed our glove was bringing more comfort to the 6 000 employees in their everyday tasks.

Whatever duty they were working on, their hands could remain dry, without taking any risk of tears. They know their hands are protected the right way.

Air France is in constant research of progress plans (technical and economic). We have brought them a good solution with our 376R.

2019 is a year during which we will work on our 406 and 546, as alternatives to the Temp’Ice and Krytech 557R.
