Today we deliver 3000 face shields to the NHS’s Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group.
We are pleased to be able to make this small contribution to help the NHS as they fight to help those affected by COVID-19. Even better is that these masks are the second batch of many produced by local business Thomas Dudley Ltd, a shining example of local SMEs answering the nation’s call for help.
Thomas Dudley are renowned for their iron castings and plastic components for sanitary ware not PPE, but they are a business who have invested heavily for the future in the latest development and production equipment for injection moulding. It is that investment that has enabled them in quick form to manufacturer tooling and start producing much needed face shields. I’m proud to know Thomas Dudley and proud of UK manufacturing.
Let’s not forget that investment and manufacturing are vital and not just manufacturing of high tech but also of the more mundane like toilet cisterns and dare I say fencing. The UK needs manufacturing.
