Medstrom MD praises team as company pushes to meet demand for vital hospital equipment
Having only launched its new manufacturing facility at the end of 2019, Medstrom Healthcare has confirmed it has been working tirelessly to meet the increased demand across the healthcare network during the COVID-19 outbreak.
An essential supplier to the NHS, HSE and other healthcare sectors, Medstrom moved production of key ranges, including its ultra-low 5000 specialist profiling bed, to the UK in 2019 following the launch of its new manufacturing facility, Medstrom House, in Castle Donnington.
Since the pandemic, the independent provider of bed management services and products has ramped up the production rate of hospital beds and mattresses in order to deliver much-needed support throughout the UK and Ireland.
Scott Apsey, Managing Director for Medstrom, commented: “In conversations with our healthcare partners over the last few weeks, it is very clear that they need and require our support. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved as a company to date and by definition, immeasurably proud of each and every one of our staff members for their amazing collective efforts.
“Volunteers from other departments have added to our manufacturing, decontamination and implementation teams, ensuring that we can maintain the high level of support and service.”
Alongside accelerating production, the company is also playing its part to encourage individuals to stay safe and champion the government’s guidelines with new signage on its vehicle fleet, as well as an updated uniform that prioritises safe social distancing to protect its workforce and others.
“I would also like to thank our supply chain and distribution partners, who have allowed us to deliver products and distribute them nationwide,” added Scott.
“Altogether the collective effort shown is remarkable and I trust that it will make a big difference in combating this disease, during these difficult and unprecedented circumstances.”https://thiis.co.uk/medstrom-md-praises-team-as-company-pushes-to-meet-demand-for-vital-hospital-equipment/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Medstrom-two.jpg?fit=900%2C468&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Medstrom-two.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Coronavirus NewsCOVID-19 Trade NewsNewsroomSector NewsSupplier NewsTrade Newscoronavirus,COVID-19,distributors,HSE,Medstrom Healthcare,Medstrom House,NHS,social distancing,supply chain,ultra-low 5000 specialist profilling bedHaving only launched its new manufacturing facility at the end of 2019, Medstrom Healthcare has confirmed it has been working tirelessly to meet the increased demand across the healthcare network during the COVID-19 outbreak.
