Punchline Business and Community Champion: Poeton donates thousands of PPE items to NHS

Gloucester-based Poeton Industries has donated a large quantity of PPE to a local hospital, to help in the fight against coronavirus.

And it has earned Poeton a nomination as a Punchline Business and Community Champion - an initiative backed by GFirst LEP, the Growth Hub, Gloucestershire County Council and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The surface treatment company, which has also been working with customers in the production of medical ventilators, has donated around 11,000 gloves after Gloucester Royal Hospital put out an appeal. The items have been sourced from the company's laboratories and metal treatment lines at its Eastern Avenue headquarters.

The firm employs 120 people in Gloucester and also has facilities in Cardiff and Poland. Its services have been used in everything from high-profile aircraft to space probes.

Darren Burge, managing director of Poeton, said: "We are delighted to be able to directly support two local organisations who are working tirelessly to treat people affected by the current crisis. We are extremely proud of the work our NHS and frontline staff are doing and hope that this gesture can go a long way in supporting them."
