Centurion celebrate 140th anniversary with film that calls out its wearers

3 December 2019

Leading above-the-neck protection manufacturer Centurion is kick-starting a year of 140th anniversary celebrations with a brand film that champions the efforts and achievements of the men and women who wear its head protection systems.

Featuring an abstract landscape that a variety of engineers, builders, architects and surveyors journey through, the film celebrates “those who sweat the small stuff, and those who dare to think big.”

It features an array of Centurion products – from all-purpose to specialist – including its latest innovation that is the result of a UK Innovate grant aims to reimagine respiratory protection.

The film ends with a nod to tomorrow – as a student steps forward a glimmer of a future head protection system flickers over her head, accompanied by the voiceover “We’re proud to have been by your side for the past 140 years. Where will the next 140 years take us?”

CEO Jeff Ward comments; “We are proud of our rich heritage not just protecting workers, but giving them the clarity to be at their best. Our 140-year film is testament to the transformative effect of our wearers on the world we live in and our excitement about the future that we can continue to shape together.”

The film launched at Düsseldorf’s A+A trade fair and will feature online and on social channels, with a programme of further anniversary celebrations to follow through 2020.
