We are delighted to announce Alexandra has sold over 200 million units of PPE over the last year worldwide.
The PPE – which includes masks, nitrile gloves, safety footwear and more – was primarily provided to the NHS and healthcare industry for distribution to Covid testing centres, hospitals, care homes, opticians, dentists and other facilities.
We expanded our PPE presence last year to help respond to the challenges of the global pandemic. This included the transformation of our operations so that 90 per cent of manufacturing capacity in its UK and international factories produce scrubs for the NHS.
As well as being a Tier One PPE supplier to the NHS in England and Wales, we recently established a dedicated division to further develop an extensive, quality PPE portfolio tailored to the needs of customers across all market sectors.
This division will be handled by our newly recruited, dedicated team who have over 65 years combined experience in the PPE industry.
Diane Buckley, Head of PPE Sales, said: “Everyone at Alexandra should be incredibly proud of what they’ve achieved since the start of the pandemic. Their hard work and determination have meant healthcare workers on the frontline have the necessary protection to provide care at a critical time and ultimately save lives.
“Alexandra’s transformation is made all the more impressive that in such a short space of time we ensured every single item of PPE that Alexandra have supplied has always met the proper technical and regulatory standards, as our NHS and care workers deserve and require the best quality.
“We’re now looking at ways we can build on what we’ve learnt over the last year to develop and innovate through our PPE range to give people working across all types of businesses and industries what they need to safely succeed in the workplace.”
