Love in the time of Coronavirus | Bentley supports local community to ‘be safe’ during COVID-19 Crisis
Bentley Motors has extended its ‘Be Safe’ health and safety programme to look after the local community in Cheshire, as well as Bentley colleagues during the coronavirus crisis.
The company is focusing on using its specialist skills to 3D print over 30,000 face-shields and supply them to the Cheshire care sector, including all care homes, the NHS and other local community services. Simultaneously, Bentley is donating personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, facemasks, safety glasses and seat covers. The company is also extending its Bentley ‘Meals on 22 inch Wheels’ service, where colleagues volunteer to deliver essential items in the community.
The 3D face-shields are being created by Bentley’s specialist engineering teams, using their engineering expertise and 3D printing facilities. The 30,000 face-shields, fully manufactured at Bentley’s factory in Crewe, will supply the Cheshire care sector, which includes all 95-care homes in the area, the NHS and other local community services.
