The Poole-based company’s fume and dust extraction technology is already playing a vital role in keeping the production of essential supplies, such as food and health care products, flowing, but now it has been able to source thousands of face masks from its supply network to help front-line carers in the fight against COVID-19.

Face masks have been donated to a number of social care facilities, many of which were nominated by staff who have friends and family working in the sector.

A care home manager said, “We just wanted to thank you all so much for thinking of us during such challenging times. Our staff are dedicated to caring for our vulnerable residents and due to your kind generosity of donating this essential PPE, will allow them to continue to do their jobs to the fullest extent.”

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council was also able to share some of the face masks among its key workers.

Managing director of BOFA, Tony Lockwood, said, “Getting PPE to front-line carers requires a national effort and I’m pleased we have been able to contribute. We hope to be able to distribute several thousand more masks over the coming weeks.

“I am also grateful to my colleagues at BOFA for their hard work in these unprecedented times – their efforts in supplying fume and dust extraction systems are helping to keep production lines running for many essential supplies.”
