Essentra Components hassle-free service supports VentilatorChallengeUK

Essentra Components, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of essential components, is delighted to announce its support of the VentilatorChallengeUK consortium in the race to produce 10,000 ventilators for the NHS.

Responding to unusual time pressures associated with the emergency targets set by the NHS. Penlon, a member of the VentilatorChallengeUK consortium had the immediate need for nylon washers to complete the build of the initial batch of their EOS 2 Emergency Ventilator.

Mike Barlow, Materials Manager commented, “We appreciate Essentra Components’ quick response by supplying 60,000 nylon washers within 2 hours of order. They even hand delivered them and meant that we could complete the first 30 ventilators for the NHS. We can’t ask for more.”

With demands rising on the Penlon production line, further parts were ordered from Essentra’s wide range of 45,000 products, including, slotted screws, knurled knobs, cable clips and rectangular inserts. The highly innovative Penlon EOS 2 ventilator stood up to rigorous testing and subsequently was the first ventilator in the challenge to receive regulatory approval from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Explained Scott Fawcett, Divisional Managing Director “Our team here at Essentra Components are proud to be supporting consortium member Penlon with hassle free urgent delivery of vital components making life easier throughout their development and production processes.”

Essentra Components consequently has created dedicated production lines to support customers in the medical and critical industries.
