About Scansafe

CS-Gruppen consists of the companies Chr. Sørensen AS and Scansafe. Chr. Sørensen AS has sold personal protective equipment, wear, equipment and chemical-technical products for 50 years. Scansafe was established as a result of necessary changes in the 1990s and received exclusive rights to the sale of special gloves and other protective equipment on the Norwegian market. Retailers currently sell all or part of this range nationally. During the past few years CS-Gruppen has developed its own products and trademarks. The collection was launched in the early 1990s, and initially consisted of thermal clothing in fur fibre and fleece. The transition from representing others to manufacturing own products was necessary in order to offer competitive prices. Jobmaster and CS Worksafe were registered as own trademarks some 10 years ago. The products were manufactured on a licence from China. CS-Gruppen has its own employees who monitor production and perform quality control and follow-up at the factories. Jobmaster offers a complete range of shoe and wear products, and can offer flame-retardant clothing specially-adapted to the offshore industry. The products meet the oil industry's strict demands on quality, visibility and flame retardation. CS-Gruppen delivers complete collections to a number of large companies, and the choice of textiles and colour combinations will be adapted to each industry and company profile. CS Worksafe is the trademark for gloves, and the range includes over 100 different models of special gloves, covering all industries. Scansafe is also the Norwegian agent of gloves from US manufacturer Best Gloves. Through a retailer in Kirkenes, the company has for example supplied gloves during the past two years to US trawlers fishing for king crab in the North. It covers all needs in every industry. CS-Gruppen has supply contracts with, among others, dentists, hairdressing chains, contractors, industry, and defence. The contracts may cover a particular product or complete equipment, including helmets and protective goggles. Experienced staff provide advice and guidance to everybody who visits the specialist shop in Forus. Appointments can also be made to ensure full attention without having to wait.
