Minebea Intec donates 50 protective masks to Royal Glamorgan Hospital in the fight against coronavirus

13 July 2020

MinebeaMitsumi President Yoshihisa Kainuma and Jörg Hoffmann, General Manager of Regional Affairs for Europe, initiated the distribution of a total of 17,000 N95 protective masks around 17 European locations. 

Throughout the UK, the supply of respiratory masks and protective clothing is still poor. Numerous care facilities are desperately looking for the necessary equipment to protect their employees during the coronavirus crisis. 

MinebeaMitsumi President Yoshihisa Kainuma and Jörg Hoffmann, General Manager of Regional Affairs for Europe, initiated the distribution of a total of 17,000 N95 protective masks around 17 European locations. "In the current situation, we see it as our responsibility to protect not only our own employees, but also the local communities and associations, and thus also the regional economy, as best we can," says Jörg Hoffmann. 

In the UK, a member of Minebea Intec staff requested to purchase some of the masks for The Royal Glamorgan hospital in South Wales close to where she lives. On hearing that the hospital supplies were so low, Country Manager; Colin Maher acted quickly and sought 50 masks from head offices in Germany. Colin donated the masks to Claire Jones, Head of Nursing at the hospital just a couple of weeks after the initial request from staff member Jess Vousden. 

Colin said ‘when Jess contacted me to purchase face masks for her local hospital, it made me realise how real this situation is and how desperate they must be to provide PPE for their staff. Jess knows this first hand as her wife works in the hospital so we were delighted when we could help‘.

Minebea Intec continues to donate masks to hospitals in need of these vital PPE, Colin concluded, ‘it’s the very least we can do for these NHS workers who are working around the clock to keep our communities safe‘.
