Did you know that VELTUFF® is not some corporate workwear provider, instead we are a family business who carry a passion and care to provide everyone with safety and protective workwear?
The Calder family name is well established in the industry. The UK parent company BACA Safety & Workwear Ltd was established in 1966 in Northampton, England, with the addition of the VELTUFF® brand in 1996. VELTUFF® is now a global brand with head offices in Denmark & the UK and sales offices in France, Germany, Netherlands & Sweden. In the early stages of the VELTUFF® brand the business decided to deliver directly to the end consumer, making a lot of noise in the industry by cutting out the middleman and attracting major brands to our growth. With the launch of this website late in 2021 we now have a platform for all customers to come and see for themselves why we are a trusted brand across Europe.
