Northfield School Manufacturing PPE for NHS and Local Care Homes

Having sourced some material (Polypropylene and PVC) it was great to finally make use of our fantastic facilities at Northfield SSC. The timing was also great, local requests were coming in and it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to support our local NHS and care home staff as well as many others in our local community.

Lucky to have a fantastic team in D&T, we manufactured (initially feeling strange being at a social distance) and assembled 396 face shields and 106 ear savers in one day. Over 220 products have already been deployed to a number of institutions with many more to follow.

I am also hugely grateful to Northfield staff who have contacted various institutions, have collected and delivered these products and offered to help in any way possible.

Many thanks to one of our suppliers, Kitronik and https://twitter.com/tweetsnmirrors?lang=en  for creating and suppling the design and drawings to schools.
