BIRMINGHAM-based manufacturer U Group, has increased its hospital bin production five-fold to satisfy increasing orders for the NHS.
The company has made investments in its production capabilities and now produce a vast array of products from bakeware to bins to service the hospitality industry, the domestic market and healthcare establishments such as the NHS and care homes.
2019 saw the installation of an injection moulding machine. This speeds up the production process and allows them to respond to crisis situations. This change has led to their ability to service large orders to support the overwhelming surge in bin requirement from the NHS to help the fight against COVID-19.
Lee McDonagh, managing director of U Group said, “Our strategy in recent years has been to have greater control of the quality and costs of our products and to that avail we made a conscious move to UK production. We are pleased that we can respond to the NHS demands and hope it helps goes some way to reduce the suffering caused by the virus.”
