Abraflex Limited, the Paisley-based manufacturer of protective wear for Bruce Power and other businesses in the nuclear industry, has shifted some of its business to assist area health care and other front-line workers in the fight against COVID-19.
Abraflex, with the support of Bruce Power and Bruce County, has started producing gowns to be used by physicians, nurses and other health-care workers. The company, as announced last week, has also joined with Bruce Power and the county to purchase a Clean Flow Health Care mini, used to sanitize personal protecting equipment (PPE) used by health-care workers.
“Our supply-chain partners have made large contributions to protecting our health-care workers as they look after patients with incredible compassion and courage every day in the face of this pandemic,” said Ross Thompson, Department Manager, Supply Chain Management. “What Abraflex has done in quickly mobilizing its employees and facility in Paisley to produce protective gowns for our hospitals and other health-care facilities is admirable and a reflection of what we’re seeing from many companies in the nuclear industry’s supply chain – a remarkable ability to react quickly and be innovative in this time of need.”
