It’s been just two weeks since Plunkett Associates first started supplying PPE visors to their client, Resource-12, and they’re delighted to report that, to date, they have shipped 100,000 for distribution across the Healthcare sector.
Resource-12 has manufactured the face visors in accordance with BS EN 166:2002 for supply to the NHS/healthcare workers.
Initially, Plunkett’s toolroom produced two aluminium single cavity tools to get things up and running, followed by a double cavity steel tool which was brought online last week.
With three tools in the presses, their mould shop has been busy! Running 24/7 has allowed time for a couple of modifications to the tools and means going forwards; they have the potential for up to 16,000 parts a day, circa 100,000 PPE face visors per week.
Those of you who know Plunkett Associates, know that they are used to tight timescales and getting things done above and beyond the ‘norm’! However, to have achieved these quantities in these timescales with the current COVID-19 restrictions has been something of a different challenge!
It’s been an enormous team effort, and they’re grateful to everyone who has been involved in making it happen.
Please contact Plunkett Associates (or Resource 12) if they can be of service, or, if you or someone you know is looking to source PPE visors.
