Nottinghamshire business, Prime Group, has swung into action to make disposable visors for NHS staff left without the necessary PPE in the face of the Covid-19 emergency.
Managing director Jon Tolley’s wife is a critical care practitioner at an NHS intensive care unit, and found herself without the necessary PPE earlier this week (w/c 23rd March).
Nottinghamshire-based Prime Group looked at how it could use its existing expertise in lasercutting and plastics to come up with a solution.
“We picked up a used, cleaned visor, dissembled it and produced our first prototype the next day,” Tolley explained.
“We delivered 100 yesterday (25th March) afternoon for staff to trial – they love them and are so grateful.”
Prime can make thousands of visors a day at present and is hoping to ramp that up to 10,000.
Can you help fund the manufacture and distribution of vital PPE visors, today?
28th March - Prime field-tested Version 2 last night (picture in updates) and it is now signed off for production ramp up.
