It’s needed. We do it. That’s not a reaction. It’s our philosophy.

During the second week of lockdown Access2 increased production to support the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. The new Specialist Critical Care Centre at the Grange University Hospital development was pulled forward due to Coronavirus outbreak. With an original completion date of 2021, the hospital was now preparing for March 2020.

The Care Centre approached Access2 for 1000 cylinders to help complete work at the hospital. Neil Rule, Access2 Managing Director, commented:

“The order for the cylinder locks was placed on Thursday afternoon and Access2 delivered on the following Monday. Usually it takes four weeks to turn around an order of that size. We had to clear all production and split the production team into two smaller shifts. This was to accommodate social distancing and to allow the work to continue. We also hand delivered the cylinders to our customer to make sure the order got there safely.”

The Access2 team worked incredibly hard to fulfill this important NHS job. Many thanks to everyone involved and to the hospital for the amazing work they do.
