WAI responds to call for PPE

Date: 27-Apr-2020

WAIglobal has responded to calls from the automotive sector and other industries and is using its supply chain links to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) including hand sanitiser and two different types of face masks to companies.

WAI recognises that the entire supply chain requires direct access to basic PPE protection to enable them to carry out essential work as safely as possible. 

In addition, working alongside its PR agency Impression Communications, WAI is donating a number of face masks to hospices and care homes across the UK. 

Two face mask models are available from WAI, including a three-layer disposable mask (recommended for single shift) that is fully compliant, CE marked and sold in packets of ten.

There is also the KN95 mask that has a 95% particle filtration, is CE marked and is recommended to be used for up to 12 hours.

Richard Welland, WAIglobal UK managing director, said: “All of these products are necessary to keep us safe and well and enable the automotive aftermarket to operate safely during the pandemic. We have used our global supply chain to source the best quality items to help deal with the issues we are all facing.”
