Label and signage manufacturer MTM Products is helping the NHS in its time of need.
The Chesterfield-based business is manufacturing large quantities of front fascia overlays for the nurse call handsets used in the temporary hospitals being built in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In total, MTM Products is manufacturing over 14,000 overlays for one of its longstanding medical sector customers. The first 5,000 have already been delivered.
The turnaround for the project has been very challenging, but like every business and individual in the UK right now, the team at MTM are rallying together to deliver the lifesaving equipment.
MTM has a variety of customers who are also supplying products to the NHS and emergency services. These customers have asked MTM to continue trading so they can fulfil their responsibilities and supply essential equipment to health services in both the UK and Mainland Europe.
MTM plan to continue manufacturing at both of its Chesterfield sites for as long as possible, whilst observing Government advise of social distancing and hygiene. Orders directly related to the fight against COVID-19 are being prioritised.
MTM Managing Director, Ian Greenaway, said: “We are proud to be able to play our part in ensuring that the NHS and emergency services receive supplies necessary to fight the COVID-19 virus. We are part of a supply chain for many essential medical and life safety products and will do everything we can to maintain continuity of supply.”
