Caribbean Trading Co. LLC (Caribbtrade) was established in Sharjah in 1987 and is an associate of the Nautilus International Group of Companies, which was established in 1974, and is keenly involved in Safety Practices and Equipment in varied spheres.
Caribbtrade designs and specifies personal safety equipment from head to toe to meet the highest international standards with emphasis on Safety, Quality, Ergonomics, Durability, Price and Ecology. Ergonomics encourages end users to use the products. To ensure maximum safety Caribbtrade uses only the best quality ingredients but with an eye on their being recyclable after being discarded. The Company re-certifies products to meet the latest regulations. We recently re-qualified Category 3 safety products by submitting Respirators for CE as well as the new NIOSH Certification. For Fall Arrest where the danger to life is imminent we persuaded a Chinese manufacturer to set up their factory in the UAE so as to not only maintain top quality but also provide our QC personnel the opportunity to personally inspect and re-design products necessary, including seeking feedback from leading Safety Directors of end users. Our products now meet the latest upgraded Category 3 standards and re-certification for Hearing protection.
Caribbtrade also provides onsite training to the workforce in the safe and effective use of products. To ensure high standards all Sales Managers and Executives are requested to complete Literary Graduate Degrees and to qualify for NEBOSH. The Company pays the fees for the courses, books, transportation and gives time off the exams to ensure success. We provide train-the-trainer training for Safety officers for dialy ‘inspection before use’ of Category 3 PPE.
As an extension to personal safety Nautilus developed Fire Fighting equipment, heat and fire resistant personal safety wear, chemical resistant apparel and footwear, plus Pandemic protection. Nautilus also developed Arc Flash Resistant clothing, Electrical Hazard Safety Helmets, boots, gloves and sub zero Winter wear.
To ensure ready availability, Caribbtrade maintain huge stocks in several warehouses with a fleet of delivery vehicles and outlets and Dealers in all UAE Emirates and Distributors in all GCC countries, CIS countries and in Africa.
To ensure safe machinery maintenance practices Caribbtrade has a full range of Lock Out / Tag Out (LOTO) devices and the qualification to carry out an audit by factory trained Safety Officers in the correct and efficient use of these devices.
In addition to the Training Division, Caribbtrade has a Seafood Division and a Marine Engineering Division also.
