“We would like to extend our thanks to all of our suppliers at this time, without them and their commitment we would simply not be able to supply the vast numbers of hospital and home care beds that our NHS so desperately needs,” he said.

“Our UK suppliers have shown exceptional support during these last couple of weeks and we would like to highlight the fantastic work they are continuing to do; Hub Le Bas Tubes, Manchester; TR Fastenings, Manchester; Bethel Rhodes & Sons Ltd, Keighley; Thomas Brown Engineering Ltd, Huddersfield; Fisher Plastics Ltd, Huddersfield; AAC Cyroma Ltd, Oxfordshire; Bright Screw, Leeds; JMT Shopfitters, Wakefield and Ernest Gill, Halifax to name a few, thank you!

“Our own colleagues working in production, distribution, purchasing, service and decontamination, to name just a few of our teams who have shown resilience, flexibility and determination to play their part to help the NHS. Thank you to everyone for your commitment, not just to Drive DeVilbiss but ultimately for helping to ease the burden on the NHS and other frontline services.”
