Critical service transport support:
Who do emergency services call in an emergency? We answered the call and supplied around 170 Ford vehicles. Many went out to the ambulance service as non-emergency support vehicles to assist with their transport needs, along with providing fleet management expertise.
Delivering to vulnerable groups:
Since the Coronavirus lockdown, we’ve been working with local authorities and volunteer groups close to our main facilities to support the distribution of food and medication along with supplying transportation for key workers.
Providing and manufacturing PPE:
As we’ve all seen on the news personal protection equipment (PPE) is in great demand. To assist, workers at our Bridgend plant have donated 13,500 pairs of gloves, 150 one-piece disposable suits and safety glasses. Over at Dunton, staff are trialling production of face shields to give medical teams even better protection during the fight against COVID-19.
In line with government advice our dealers are closed. But behind the scenes some workshops have remained open to provide servicing support for emergency services and essential businesses who need to stay on the road during the Coronavirus outbreak.
We’re all doing our bit:
We clapped for the NHS. Many of our employees answered the National Health Service’s call to arms for volunteers to help in their local community. Whilst our engineers are donating their time online with interviews to help students and teachers as part of the Primary Engineer Leaders Award competition.
