"This is a not-for-profit venture and we recognise both the level of demand and critical need for PPE face shields and would love to be able to help everyone. At present, we have the capability to supply face shields directly to front line clinicians in acute care settings, but we are continuing to work with our supply chain to review this. Our aim is to support as many frontline workers as we possibly can in the fight against Covid-19."
Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Martin Kearney, said:
“If a local company can re-purpose its production line with such agility and innovation to make urgently needed equipment for health workers, then we can re-purpose one of our sports centres to facilitate their work.
“Supplying premises, equipment and staff means we can play a very practical part in supporting local industry’s response to the pandemic and we are more than glad to do so”.
