We have 4 state of the art innovation centres located in Alytus (Lithuania), Corby, Accrington and Middleton (in the UK) that cater for developments in chemistry, processes, material usage, new product development and sustainability. These innovation centres catalyse the way we do things all over the world: meaning that we are able to take our products to market fast.

Our Innovation Stories

Vita Shield Face Covering

At the start of COVID-19, Vita set out to create a world-leading face covering.  A close-knit team of commercial, technical and production employees worked together to take a product from idea to full production.  The result? In the space of months, utilising a three-layer design, OEKO-TEX certification for direct skin contact, Vita created a foam face covering unparalleled within Europe. The product has been independently approved for prolonged inhalation and may be worn for sustained periods of up to eight hours. Washable and reusable up to ten times, with soft-to-touch fabric close to the skin and shaped to hug the contours of the face, this product is available in multiple sizes. Mike Murray, Vita’s Chief Technology Officer, explained “taking a product from an idea through to production and attaining complex and hard to achieve accreditations is an incredibly demanding technical accomplishment.  Many companies have created face coverings, but Vita’s focus on sustainability through making  a re-usable product; safety, through making an incredibly low VOC releasing material; and comfort,  through making a product that can be worn for hours on end, is an exceptional achievement.”

At The Vita Group, we recognise our responsibility to maintain safe and proper chemical selection and usage. We work to improve the chemical profile of our products and see product improvement and enhancement  as an integral part of our service: we take care of the chemistry, so our customers don’t have to.  Our team of material scientists worked on improving our chemistries to develop a foam that is high quality, high comfort and is TCPP Free.  One of our UK-based R&D labs led the material science from the initial idea through to product trials and product acceptance.  Our range of TCPP Free foam is now highly desired by many customers and is an example of how our material science capability differentiates us.
