Supplying solutions, supporting the frontline

Published:  14 July, 2020

Working to support the country’s essential services in this unprecedented time, loading bay solution specialist THORWORLD INDUSTRIES says it has devised safe practice methods to continue operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing the company to both assist and champion the nation’s collective combative efforts.

By adopting a ‘complete compliance’ operational approach regarding social distancing and safe working systems at its Derbyshire factory, the manufacturer has been able to continue supplying emergency loading apparatus to hospital environments where COVID-19 patients are being treated.

Although factory operations may have been functioning at a reduced capacity, the Thorworld team has successfully fulfilled key and essential loading equipment orders, including apparatus required within extremely short lead times.

Equipment, including standard ground level container ramps, has been distributed - ideal for allowing access into standard shipping containers via forklift trucks.
