ICL Tech Plastics to make 90,000 visors for the NHS
1 Minute Read
A Scottish plastics manufacturing company has ramped up production of visors for NHS staff working on the frontline against the coronavirus pandemic.
The move by Glasgow-based ICL Tech comes after a major order from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
ICL switched its production facilities recently after winning an order to make visors for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool.
It has now secured a contract for 90,000 visors from Glasgow’s health body.
The company, which normally provides plastics for the transport, oil and gas and financial sectors, said it had diversified its operations to accommodate NHS needs.
It has ramped up production in the past week from 750 visors a day to 3,000.
