A Mayo company has been working around the clock to help in the battle against Covid-19.
Established in 1983, Ballina-based Collins Plastics are one of Ireland’s largest plastic fabrication companies with clients in the health, pharmaceutical, creative and retail sectors.
The Covid-19 pandemic has seen Collins Plastics respond to the demand for personal protection equipment (PPE) for frontline staff and key workers.
To date, the company has produced over 3,000 bespoke and standard sneeze guards for retail, health, optical, local authority, hairdressing, transportation and educational establishments. Additionally, they have produced over 10,000 protective face masks for front line workers in conjunction with staff at GMIT.
“To meet the new PPE demands we have developed a standard range of sneeze guards including counter and ceiling-mounted, flat-pack units and we will shortly be adding a new range of floor mounted units and flat packed desk mounted units which are designed to protect returning students, office workers and pupils,” said the company.
“As a business, we have recruited and trained new production staff and we have been working around the clock to produce vital PPE which will help those organisations keep their people safe,” they added.
Collins Plastics offer a dynamic manufacturing service and specialise in high precision CNC laser and routing machining, vacuum and thermoforming, membrane pressing and blow-moulding capabilities. Visit collinsplastics.com
