Facing COVID-19: The medical company doubling its production to keep the NHS afloat
A medical company has announced that it has more than doubled its production to manufacture essential equipment.
Brandon Medical, which is a designer and manufacturer of integrated technology based in Yorkshire, has upped its production rate to help support the treatment of people suffering from coronavirus.
The company is responding to “massive demand” from NHS organisations for its medical technology.
Brandon Medical is currently manufacturing medical lighting and supplying failsafe portable power supplies and medical gas systems for intensive treatment units at NHS and worldwide hospitals and trusts.
Graeme Hall, executive chairman, said: “Anything the NHS asks that we can do, we do it.
“We are now producing twice as many products because of the extraordinary demand coming from our national health service.
“Orders for the first five months of the financial year have already exceeded our entire sales for 2019.
“Our factory employees are proud to step up because they know our efforts will play a vital role in helping the NHS to fight coronavirus.”
Carlo Longoni, chief executive of RIMSA, added: “It’s so beautiful to receive your solidarity and to know that even competitors, first we are friends.
“The goal of our job isn’t to make profit, but to put a small drop of water in the big ocean that is our world and make proudly our part.”
