Derbyshire company, Blackfish Group (www.blackfishgroup.co.uk
), established only nine months ago, has joined forces with world-renowned medical device company Penlon, and is working around the clock to produce thousands of technical labels which will be applied to ventilators destined for the NHS in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Blackfish Group is able to offer this service due to its investment in cutting edge machinery which allows it to print technically challenging labels for medical equipment. As a result, it is one of a number of companies in the UK which have been given clearance to access the Government’s emergency supply chain partners, to ensure it can obtain raw materials from anywhere in the world, whenever they are needed.
The Group consists of six successful smaller businesses which have joined together — each one bringing specialisms, knowledge and decades of expertise and experience to the table. It is made up of a board of six directors and 48 team members.
David Cordy, Blackfish Group chairman, said: “While the country is undergoing the most challenging of times, the chance to be a trusted partner at the heart of this project to help save so many people, has given the whole company a real sense of purpose. Our team has risen to the challenge — I could not be more proud of them.”
