Christopher Pincher MP visited Summit Systems on the Vanguard Industrial Estate to see their screens being produced to help in the battle against Coronavirus.
The screens are flexible, fit on any desk or workplace and effective in the reduction of transmission. Even as a local company they have been supplying schools and NHS trusts up and down the country and are a great example of innovation and development in the face of an unprecedented crisis.
Managing Director, Mike Jordan, and his team welcomed Mr Pincher and ran through their plans for further expansion as the orders have increased week on week. The MP then had a tour of their assembly line and ran through ways he wants to help them boost business.
Commenting, Christopher Pincher MP said:
“This is a fantastic example of some clever innovation and skill by a Tamworth business. Mike Jordan and his team saw the opportunity to re-design and then patent a more flexible, affordable and business friendly screen set up.
“I will do what I can to show this product to my Government colleagues, to help get a Tamworth business more of a profile especially as their product will be used in the prevention of COVID-19 transmission.”
