GS UK Laser Cutting Service produce Face Shields

GS UK are continuing to operate & support customers through this difficult time, including companies that supply to the NHS and other key industries. We have many staff working from home and only a skeleton staff on-site, all following the Social Distancing recommendations. Operating in this way means we have continued to supply threads and embroidery consumables, Brother printer supplies as well as remotely supporting our customers that require machine or software assistance.

One of the busiest GS areas has been the Laser Cutting department. In addition to fulfilling existing orders the GS team has also begun production of Face Shields.

Using a design made available by Nottingham companies Kitronik and Smoke & Mirrors, the GS team have been laser cutting face shields using Polypropylene for the headbands and PVC for the visor.

Production Manager Julie Spooner commented:
“We have had a lot of interest from a variety of businesses and can easily supply them ‘flat packed’. The face shield is made up of a visor and 3 pieces for the headband which very simply slot together. We have the capacity to produce 500 shields per day in our production area.”

We have also donated 300+ face shields with recipients including Nottinghamshire Hospice, Nottingham GP Alliance and a number of Care homes.
