PAB Akrapović is a family run company specialised in developing and manufacturing high tech protective helmets and body safety gear.
It was established in 1953 and has grown considerably over the decades. We employ mostly local people with diverse knowledge and skills with a focus on protective equipment.
Ivan Akrapović was a young engineer with his own vision, passion and enthusiasm for work and new discoveries. In 1953, he founded the company PAB Akrapovic and dedicated himself to researching various plastic materials. Living in the Croatian region of Istria, where every summer fires destroy the landscape, he recognised the need and the market and soon specialised in developing and producing helmets for firefighters. That and his passion for handcrafted design led to his first helmet in 1978. In close contact with firefighters special needs, COMPACTA was launched in 1997.
