MFC Survival are a specialist manufacturer of inflatable rescue, recovery and survival equipment based in Tonypandy, South Wales. Our equipment is used by fire brigades, mountain and lowland rescue, the military and humanitarian support organisations internationally and we have earned an unrivalled reputation for our product quality, durability and performance
Founded in 1959 at the old Naval Colliery site in Tonypandy, the company started by manufacturing life jackets and life rafts for the Royal Navy and South Wales commercial shipping ports. Over time the focus shifted towards the design and manufacture of specialist inflatable products for the defence and rescue industries.
MFC Survival quickly became a respected name in the field of technical inflatables and boasts an impressive history of innovation; we were the original inventor of airlift bags, the first to manufacture aircraft recovery bags and one of the first to introduce inflatable shelters.
In July 2013 MFC Survival became part of the Respirex International group of companies, who enjoy a worldwide reputation for the manufacture, service and support of high performance chemical personal protective clothing and equipment.
Since becoming a part of the Respirex group there has been a renewed emphasis on product development, with a host of new products including the RC4000 Rescue Craft, Recovery Board, Evacuation Raft and a range of Decontamination showers. The Rapid Response Shelters have been completely re-designed and the Stak Jak lifting mats are now being manufactured in the South Wales factory.
