From Henry and Hetty to healthcare essentials: Numatic delivers in Coronavirus response
Teams from Numatic International, (known globally for its smiling Henry, George and Hetty vacuum cleaners and mops) are working on several projects to support the Government and the NHS in the fight to save the lives of as many people as possible.
“Face shields are now in full production and available for delivery,” says the Somerset, UK-based manufacturer.
“These have been developed with and are currently in use with Worcestershire NHS Trust, West Midlands Ambulance Service, Birmingham Children's Hospital and The Gibraltar Health Authority. We are working towards producing 10,000 face shields per day.
“We will soon have a working prototype ventilator for assessment.
“To assist with increased demand on cleaning teams and maintain service during existing fleet breakdown, we are also able to offer free loan of additional cleaning equipment within frontline healthcare environments. We will confirm your needs, match the machine to best suit your requirements and deliver direct to your NHS site free of charge.”
Numatic’s UK manufacturing facility currently remains operational. Everyone who is able to work remotely is now doing so and maintaining a high level of service to customers. Adjustments are in place to ensure the safety of those unable to work remotely.
“We are working hard to maintain the supply of commercial cleaning equipment; however, the safety of our teams remains our priority,” says the company. “We are therefore monitoring the changing situation very closely and are ready to respond to all Government guidance.”
