Ruth Lee Ltd


Company Details

Ruth Lee Ltd is the market leader in the design and manufacture of tough and durable rescue manikins.

From our base in North Wales, we have been developing a range of training manikins for different customers and different scenarios for more than a quarter of a century. As a family business, we are customer focused and dedicated to making the best possible manikins to support those who save lives.

Currently employing around 30 people, Ruth Lee Ltd is a rapidly expanding business as teams around the world look to improve the standards of their training and ultimately, gain skills which will help them to perform their job to the best of their abilities.

In the last three years we have grown considerably, and we currently export around 70% of our production internationally. We sell manikins to more than 60 countries through a network of distributors across the globe, who are equally dedicated to providing manikins which help teams to create realistic and effective training.

The Fire and Rescue Service has traditionally been our biggest customer and is where we started out, but increasingly we also provide manikins to the other emergency services including the Coastguard and search and rescue teams and many manikins are sold to the Military each year. Our other customers are many and varied – from TV and Film Production companies and Universities to mountain rescue teams, lifeguards, and Hospitals. Essentially, in any scenario you may need to simulate a person, our manikins are the perfect choice!

From a 5kg baby to a 260kg bariatric adult, and everything in between, our range includes models for technical rescue, working at height, confined spaces and water rescue, so you are sure to find the perfect training partner. We work with experts in these industries to make sure our manikins meet the requirements of your specific training.
