Packaging company thinks outside the box to help businesses protect key workers

GWP Correx

Packaging and material handling company GWP Correx is doing its bit to help businesses protect staff during the Coronavirus outbreak.

The company has designed a modular, bespoke manufactured partition that can be adapted to most applications and environments.

While the temporary partitions have been designed to help with segregation of staff at businesses deemed critical at this time – such as those manufacturing pharmaceutical, medical, food and specialist equipment – they can equally be used by e-commerce businesses seeing increased demand during the current lock down.

Ian Cook, Managing Director at GWP Correx said: “Companies we have worked with previously were asking us if we could help in creating screens from Correx plastic, in light of current guidelines on staff safety. As these screens can potentially add an additional layer of protection for employees, the logical progression was to create a design that could be easily adapted to almost any environment.

“As a result, we have been manufacturing these partitions to customers specific requirements and configurations, tailoring them to specific workstations, packing bays, assembly lines and even desks.”

Besides the additional safety and compatibility that the manufactured screens can offer, their surfaces are easy to clean and they are lightweight for easy rearranging of the partitions as required.

And thanks to a large stock holding of material, they are available on short lead times as well.

The GWP Group – of which GWP Correx is one of five divisions – remains fully operational during the Coronavirus outbreak as it supports  a number of large food delivery companies, as well as many businesses supplying products directly into the NHS.
