“A fantastic initiative which really encapsulates the ‘can do’ approach and social purpose of this industry” is how Bacta chief executive John White reacted to news that Innovative Technology has repurposed its Oldham based facility to the production of PPE for frontline healthcare staff.
The company, best known throughout the industry for the manufacture of leading cash handling products, has turned its production to PPE in the form of protective face visors.
Already supplying to local councils, care homes and various NHS operations across the north west of England, Innovative Technology has said that it has the capacity to produce 5,000 face shields each week to help meet demand for effective personal protection equipment for staff involved in the treatment of Covid-19 patients.
Expanding on the initiative, group sales director Tony Morrison said: “We wanted to help, especially in the local community. This was something we could invest in quickly and get face shields out to those who really need them.
“We will keep producing while there is demand and we’re proud to be able to put our Innovative ethos to good use supporting healthcare staff.”
