Poeton ramps up support for medical ventilators


Provider of surface treatment solutions, Poeton Industries, has remained fully operational at all three of its production sites and has increased its support for customers working on vital medical equipment required for the UK during these challenging times.

This comes following the governments call for those industries with the capabilities to manufacture the now vitally needed ventilators for the NHS as the Coronavirus becomes more wide-spread across the UK in the coming weeks.

In a statement the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson stressed the vital role of Britain’s manufacturers in preparing the country for a significant spread of coronavirus and call on them to step up and support the nationwide effort to fight the virus.

As well as manufacturing capacity they also called for businesses with the following skills:

  • design/specification
  • rapid prototyping
  • contract/product assembly
  • certification/regulation/testing
  • logistics
  • medical training

Therefore the surface engineering specialists, with facilities in Gloucester, Cardiff and Poland, have taken the necessary measures as detailed by the UK Government to ensure the safety of staff and suppliers whilst also maintain support for customers.

Poeton Director of Sales and Marketing, Sean Hammond, commented: “The business is closely monitoring the developments and adjusting our policies to ensure safe continuation of work.

“We are proud to be doing our bit in response to the increased demand for medical equipment, patient handling equipment and ventilators.”

Poeton are experienced in working with mission critical components, with extensive work carried out in the aerospace, manufacturing and medical sectors with the ability to quickly develop new solutions in response to customer demand.

Sean continued: “Our Apticote 350 process is found on several parts that are key to the operation of the ventilator devices.

“We have been told to expect to see a significant increase in quantity of these parts and have capacity to undertake further work wherever required.”
