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
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.
