Essential Protection

At over 1mtr tall and weighing up to 40kgs the emperor penguin is the largest of all the penguins. ‘Essential Protection’ has never been truer of these birds… During the 9 week protection of their eggs the male penguins huddle in groups of upto 5000 to survive the harsh Antarctic winter. When the incubation is over the male can head for the sea to feed for the first time in around four months, in this time it would have lost around half its bodyweight. It must now undertake an arduous journey of up to 100 kilometers across the ice in the search for food for his chick. A&A pride themselves in looking after their customers in the relative thoroughness shown in these wonderful birds. This is topped with a quality commitment on all product lines to ensure the best protection for your goods. This was how our strapline ‘essential protection’ was born.
