Cotswold Printing supports local NHS staff

Cotswold Printing Company has revealed how it has been using Canon’s Clear Display Film to manufacture disposable face masks for local NHS workers, with more than 30,000 produced since the outbreak of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

Cotswold’s support has been vital for its local NHS during the battle against Covid-19

The family-owned business, which specialises in wide-format printing, started out using its Zünd digital flatbed cutter to produce critical personal protection equipment (PPE) equipment for local NHS staff.

As it already owned two Canon devices – a Colorado 1640 and an Arizona 1360 XT – Cotswold contacted Canon to supply the stocks of clear film suitable for making the visors and expand its offering.

Cotswold also enlisted the support of 25 local residents, who volunteered to help assemble the visors.

Adam Soble, managing director at Cotswold, says: “This is a crisis that impacts all of us, and as a business, we wanted to play our part, so we decided early on that we wanted to produce PPE equipment for local hospitals.

“Having already worked with Canon in the past, it seemed like the perfect place for us to explore how we could make this happen.

“We now hold enough stocks to deliver a further 15,000 visors if required in the future.”
