Bosses at Denny Bros have praised staff for their involvement in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
The family-run company in Bury St Edmunds, and businesses within the Denny Bros group, have been producing labelling for drug development and also using their specialist skills to support other areas of the medical sector.
Graham Denny, Managing Director of Denny Bros, said: “The company want to do all we can to support the fight against Covid-19.
“We have created labelling for anti-bacterial gels, end of life drugs, drug development for Covid-19 treatment and medical devices and decontamination advice for hospital bays.
“Our sister company, Willowbridge Labels in Bury, have also produced COVID-19 labels.
“While Fix-a-Form has used their highly-trained engineering department to make hundreds of clips for ventilator masks within 24 hours of the order being placed.
“This then freed the medical company up from their usual orders to concentrate on making more ventilators.
“The demand for labels is high, with the pharmaceutical companies ramping up production to cope with the worldwide pandemic.
“I would like to thank all the staff at Denny Bros for going above and beyond at this time.”
Mr Denny said the company was closely monitoring Government guidance and advice around social distancing and essential work and travel.
He explained: “As with all employers, our paramount importance during the coronavirus pandemic is to our staff, their families, our customers and our suppliers.
“We have been advised that companies involved in the supply of healthcare services have a special responsibility to maintain operations.
“Naturally, our mode of operations has changed – and will continue to do so as we listen and adhere to the latest Government guidelines.”
Measures in place within Denny Bros include strict social distancing measures in place, which include making sure all staff working on site are two metres apart and ensuring only one person per table in the staff canteen.
Mr Denny added: “These are concerning times for us all, but our aim is to continue operations and continue supporting the healthcare sector during the next critical few weeks and months.”
