Design, Innovation & Manufacture

MLA’s team brings a wealth of frontline experience to bear on the design, innovation and manufacture of personal protective equipment for the UK’s Police forces, Prisons and other ‘blue light’ industries.

We are the UKs only manufacturer of Public Order Helmets.

These are made at our factory in Yorkshire and here is a snippet of our production .

A deep understanding of the role that protective equipment, in use on the front line, plays; gives us valuable insights. 

This allows us to then supply customers high quality, rigorously tested products that are comfortable, easy to use and great value for money.

  • By on shoring production, MLA have shortened the supply chain with 90% of the products we now sell ‘Made in Britain’ – a majority of them produced in the Yorkshire-based workshop.
  • We can also work with you on bespoke product development or modifications to an existing product and undertake small quantity orders for any leather and canvas products.
  • The latest state of the art sewing and cutting equipment as well as our technical expertise ensure top productivity whilst guaranteeing quality.
  • Inhouse production is thanks to significant investment in both new state of the art equipment and staff development, so we now have great technical expertise to manufacture leather and canvas products in house.
  • MLA works closely with several Test and Certification Houses to provide full turn-key services for our clients. Our product design team can be on site with the product under test in order to insure a smooth test and certification process. We follow the product through the appropriate certification flow to insure successful testing and documented certifications.
