An Innovative idea to produce thousands of face shields for healthcare staff

Date published: 29 April 2020

Oldham company Innovative Technology, which is usually renowned for manufacturing leading cash handling products, has turned its production to Personal Protective Equipment in the form of face visors to assist frontline healthcare staff.

Already supplying to local councils, care homes and various NHS operations across the North West, the local company can produce 5,000 face shields each week to help fulfil demand.

Group Sales Director Tony Morrison said: “We wanted to help, especially in the local community.

"This was something we could invest in quickly and get face shields out to those who really need them.

"We will keep producing while there is demand and we’re proud to be able to put our Innovative ethos to good use in supporting healthcare staff.”

Enquiries for the supply of protectiveface shields should be directed via email to:
