Fighting Covid 19 together, safely

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is presenting a considerable global challenge. As a result, it’s awe-inspiring to see how all in the manufacturing sector have pulled together in a period of massive change.

We are very proud of our own terrific team. We have worked together to create our Safety First plan to safely maintain production and support the needs of our customers in key industries including food supply, pharmaceuticals and healthcare.

Greaves’ Safety First Plan includes:-

  • Working from home wherever possible
  • Improved workflow to minimise contact
  • Minimum 4m between workstations
  • Rigorous cleaning and sanitisation procedures
  • Use of new digital production planning tools

With these measures we are on target to deliver current orders and have taken on several new fast track projects. Furthermore, Greaves are supporting our customers in increasing output of products key to the fight against Covid 19, including

  • Hand sanitiser
  • Anti-viral and anti-bacterial cleaning products
  • Food production

A time for positive action

Greaves help manufacturers adapt production


We have also helped a number of established customers reconfigure their production capability to address shortages of high demand items. Most noteworthy, within the past week we have advised two manufacturers of paints and coatings in the use of existing Greaves mixing systems to produce anti-viral hand sanitiser.

We are now in the process of contacting other customers with similar equipment and advising them how they too can join the national effort to produce these vital products.

Finally, if you would like to know more or feel might be able to help you in these challenging times, please get in touch.

Sharing the Christmas Spirit across the generations

Supporting local charity is important to Greaves – and particularly at this time of year. In 2017 we are pleased to be supporting 2 local events covering the complete spectrum from young to old. The events also bring focus onto difficulties that are particularly prevalent at this time of year, loneliness and homelessness.

Community Christmas Dinner

Christmas can sometimes be the loneliest time of year, especially for the vulnerable and elderly people that live in our local area.

Without families, or friends, people can find themselves alone at this festive period, so the team at Evolving Fitness Gym has joined forces with local business sponsors, including Joshua Greaves to host a community Christmas dinner at 2.30pm on Thursday 21st December 2017 at Haslingden Cricket Club.

Anyone who might find themselves apart from family or friends on Christmas Day is welcome to come along.

Alternatively, if you know someone in your local community who will be alone this Christmas, please contact the team. We can personally invite them to join the celebrations

To get in touch, please call Nichola McCloud on 07925237485 or Lisa Foster on 07984467053. Alternatively, email
