Here at the BLACKFISH GROUP, we’ve been working around the clock to produce thousands of technical labels that are to be applied to ventilators for the NHS. These ventilators are estimated to save 90,000 + lives in the UK during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The opportunity for Blackfish to play such a major role at this challenging time is thanks to an already well-established relationship with our client Penlon, who develop world-renowned medical devices.
Thanks to the technical capabilities that the Blackfish Group are able to offer, allowing us to print technically challenging labels for medical equipment, we’re ideally placed to sit at the heart of this collaboration with Penlon. Indeed, few other companies in the UK have the technology, machinery and expertise required to produce this type of label.
With such a vital task on our hands, it’s hard to believe that we established the Blackfish Group just 9 months ago. However, the sum of our experience here is not to be underestimated. The group consists of 6 smaller businesses coming together to realise a greater potential; each bringing knowledge specialisms with decades of expertise and experience to create a joint entity.
The Blackfish Group is made up of a Board of 6 Directors and 48 team members. Each individual is incredibly important to the Board, who are passionate about crafting and sustaining a great team culture.
When asked what this opportunity means to the group, David Cordy, Chairman of the Blackfish Group, said: “Whilst the country is undergoing the most challenging of times, the chance to be a trusted partner at the heart of this project to help save so many people, has given the whole company a real sense of purpose. Our team has risen to the challenge, and I could not be more proud of them.”
David went on to explain how the team are managing to abide by the Government’s guidance for social distancing in the workplace: “The Government’s advice is clear and we have been able to adopt all aspects of it. Our personnel have embraced the important role we have to play and are keen to maintain their own safety so that they can guarantee they can fulfil it.”
