Operations, supply chain and logistics

There has been an unprecedented and significant increase in demand in the areas of community beds, pressure reducing mattresses, cushions and respiratory products. Manufacturing capacity in these crucial areas has been reviewed, restructured and increased accordingly, whilst also mitigating any health and safety risk to our key workers. In addition, and to ensure that our supply chain is operating effectively, the transportation of finished goods has also been reassessed.  We are now in many instances undertaking alternative shipment methods to expedite the delivery of raw materials and finished goods into our distribution centres.

As a result of these unprecedented pressures on the afore-mentioned product categories, we reserve the right to apply an upcharge of 10% to certain products. This charge is a temporary measure and will apply only during this period of increased demand due to Covid-19. 
Please contact Customer Services or your relevant area representative to communicate your requirements.
