As leading UK manufacturers race to design, produce and supply over 30,000 ventilators for the NHS at breakneck speed, sign makers and plastic processing businesses the length and breadth of the country are simultaneously making protective face masks, guarding and shields for the medical, retail and essential services sectors.
Behind the scenes, Tamworth-based Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC ) is servicing and supporting some of these businesses with industry leading cutting tool solutions at this critical period for UK industry.
With the global economy largely in lockdown and the international shipment of goods being restricted, the tooling manufacturer is well placed as a UK manufacturer of standard and specialist cutting tool solutions to keep the wheels on the coronavirus fightback.
With manufacturers scrambling for cutting tool vendors with readily available stock levels, ITC has huge stock levels of standard tools and raw materials – giving the Midlands company the capacity to produce specials with rapid turnround times.
ITC is also following Government guidelines and retaining limited safe staff levels, operating at safe distances and taking every precaution to ensure the safety of its staff and valued customers during this challenging period.
As a UK cutting tool manufacturer with extensive experience of serving the medical industry, ITC also has an unparalleled reputation with Formula One teams and their respective supply chain – it is this supply chain and regular ITC customer base that is so prevalent in the race to manufacture ventilators for the NHS.
Likewise, ITC has a strong customer base in the signage and PoS display sectors. It is these companies that are processing signage and displays on a daily basis that are now ‘key manufacturers’ in the production of ‘self-distancing’ guarding, signage and other safety critical plastic, CFRP and Perspex components and shields.
ITC is standng ready to fulfil any cutting tool requirements during this difficult period (www.itc-ltd.co.uk
