Paul Brown

Hello! My name is Paul Brown and I am a UK Sales Manager for PPE at Lyreco. I have been with Lyreco for 11 years and working within the PPE and safety industry for around 7 years, working in an array of sectors, including construction, manufacturing, industrial, food production, and healthcare.

Before joining Lyreco, I was the one wearing the PPE – I spent over 10 years working in the construction industry up and down the country in varying roles, from underpinning, pilling, and window fitting to working on construction sites. I know what it’s like to wear sub-standard products as well as fit-for-purpose PPE – and I’ll always sway towards the latter, with better comfort and garments that don’t put your safety at risk.

Throughout my years in PPE procurement, I have mainly been involved with working with suppliers to source and deliver PPE, where we don’t have a direct equivalent in our standard range, to customers. I am also BSIF Safety Supplier qualified, so you can be assured I can provide expert knowledge and experience on PPE and safety procurement, assisting in ensuring your business is ISO compliant.

Key Highlights

  • 11 years at Lyreco
  • 7 years in the PPE & safety industry
  • Worked in the construction for over 10 years
  • Working with customers to source and deliver non-catalogue PPE
  • BSIF Level 2 Sage Supplier Accreditation
