About Bova

BOVA cemented their reputation in Africa by delivering high quality engineering through their range of safety footwear. 21 years after producing their first safety boot, BOVA extended their portfolio to include body protection, thermal protection and fall protection.

When designing new products, we explore the varied dangers inherent in an industry and then engineer the product purposed with protecting employees within those environments. For procurement and those we protect, this means utilising our category ranges to ensure that the required safety needs are met. Different employees within the same industry often require very different levels of protection. Through an understanding of the varied dangers faced by an employee in their work environment and applying the correct product, clients can ensure that they do not under-spec for some employees, thereby compromising on safety or over-spec for others – and compromise on cost-effectiveness.

All Bova products are manufactured in ISO 9001 accredited facilities, utilising cutting-edge technology and innovations. In this way, we can ensure that what we release into the market performs with the purpose for which it was engineered.
