Ty­phoon is cel­e­brat­ing an un­prece­dented 70 years in busi­ness this year. The com­pany, based in north east Eng­land, was set up after Os­car Gu­gen came to the UK after the Sec­ond World War and started up the Bri­tish Sub Aqua Club, now the largest div­ing club in the world.

The com­pany be­gan mak­ing surf­ing wet­suits around 1979 and pi­o­neered light­weight neo­prenes and anatom­i­cally cor­rect de­signs to cre­ate a more sup­ple fit for in­creased move­ment, com­fort and per­for­mance. Glide skins were in­tro­duced to re­place hard-to-pul­lon rub­ber seals, as well as stretch tape for seam flex­i­bil­ity.

The com­pany also tests its prod­ucts in ex­tremely de­mand­ing en­vi­ron­ments de­vel­op­ing suits for the mil­i­tary mar­ket place: Search and Res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tions, emer­gency ser­vices, the Antarc­tic Sur­vey Team, the SAS and thou­sands of in­di­vid­ual cus­tomers, even James Bond!
