We’d like to give a big shout out to Manufacturing Guild Mark holder Gratnells, which has been concentrating production efforts on its range of medical trolleys, currently in high demand as part of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The trolleys, with an antimicrobial coating to help with infection control, are used by health professionals for the storage of face masks, gloves and medical instruments.

Gratnells’ Harlow factory is operating continuous shifts to meet demand for the medical trolleys, with recent orders to support the new Nightingale Hospital in Docklands.

The company’s production staff have been trained in good hygiene control and are working in revised work patterns to observe safe social distancing. 

The supply chain for raw materials is robust, and any spare capacity is being used to build for stock, to enable immediate dispatch of new orders.

Gratnells said: “Supporting frontline staff – whether it be teachers or health professionals – is always a major focus for Gratnells.  In these difficult times, we are happy and keen to help in the fight against coronavirus.”
