About Main Man:

Main Man is the UK’s leading workwear shop, supplying personal protective equipment (PPE) and workwear to hundreds of businesses, households and individuals.

Providing a comprehensive range of workwear clothes, protective eyewear, first aid supplies, safety footwear, work gloves and respirator mask from leading recognised brands including Warrior, Dickies, Footsure, Ansell and 3M, along with many other cost effective brands, we pride ourselves on being ‘big enough to cope but small enough to care’, realising that a fast, friendly and flexible service is important to our customers.

With eight branches across the UK and over £4.5 million of stock, we offer an ideal one stop – shop solution for all PPE, Uniform, Janitorial product and general workplace consumables. We utilise our own transport as well as national carriers to get our product to our customers in the most efficient way possible.

In January 2011, MMS became part of Lalan Rubber (PVT) Ltd, a significant manufacturer of latex and nitrile gloves, based in Sri Lanka. With their own latex plantations, centrifuge and dipping plants they offer us a ‘tree to shelf’ service. Lalan Rubber (PVT) has net assets in excess of $100m and offers us strong financial backing. They are consistently investing into new production plants and adding to their product portfolio which provides Main Man Supplies with a strong base from which we can offer good continuity of supply in this very volatile and ever changing world market.

Corporate Social Responsibility is at the core of everything we do and can only be achieved by running our business in a sustainable and ethical manner. We ensure the plantations that supply us are FSC approved and that no AZO dyes are used in production. We also have a vigorous vetting procedure to ensure the factories we utilise adhere strictly to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, UN Declaration of Human Rights and the 1998 International Labour Organisation’s ‘Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work’.
