Survitec has been selected by the UK Department for Health and Social Care to produce sterilised surgical isolation gowns in order to supply the NHS with much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This contract is part of the UK Government’s recently announced initiative for manufacturing PPE for the NHS.
The Group’s Birkenhead factory, which has continued to operate during the COVID-19 crisis, supporting the UK’s aerospace and defence industries, has been expanded to include a dedicated site for the production of the life-saving gowns. The Company will be hiring over 100 additional workers from the local area to support this critical work. As an existing supplier of choice for the UK Government, Survitec already meets the high standards for such critical material production and will produce this new PPE to the standards required by the NHS and other health services.
1st Battalion The Mercian Regiment (1 Mercian), the Salisbury-based Armoured Infantry unit specialised in urban warfare, took delivery of the first set of Inflatable Walls Training System (IWTS) in August 2019. 1 Mercian immediately benefited from the flexibility and portability of the system to deliver urban close quarter battle (CQB) training. IWTS enabled 1 Mercian to empower junior commanders to own and deliver training to their soldiers and enhance their skills in a safe environment. They shared their experience with the wider Field Army, in conjunction with Survitec, at a demonstration of the IWTS at Bulford Camp in November 2019.
