UK Manufacturer makes Critical PPE for the UK Frontline

Contrary to latest reports highlighting UK companies turning to overseas suppliers, BEC Group, the Hampshire-based manufacturers have responded rapidly, designing and manufacturing essential tooling to make products for UK workers.

Approached by two British companies in the last few weeks, BEC have quickly applied their design, tooling and moulding capabilities to critical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) production, destined for our heroes and heroines working in the NHS, care homes and out on the roads delivering food, medical aid and supplies to those in isolation.

BEC’s Marketing Manager, Clare Elvy explained; “the scale of this pandemic has weighed heavily on us all and as experienced UK manufacturers we were keen to step up. So, when we were approached by UK design innovators to engineer their clip-on visor shields Capit for delivery drivers, and Protecting Heroes to assist in large scale manufacture of NHS protective face shields, we didn’t hesitate.”

Working closely with Capit on the tooling for their protective visor system, ensuring its suitability for mass production in a short time frame, BEC have been working round the clock to ensure efficacy; taking the project from idea to final drawings in hours, and first-off samples delivered in days.

Simultaneously, conducting efficient design for manufacture, tool manufacture and material selection, all the while liaising with Protecting Heroes with prototypes tested by the Critical Care team at the Royal London Hospital, wasting little time getting into production.
