The company have consistently worked with their supply chain as initial demand was unprecedented. Initially having to bring their staff up to 200 and now upon consolidating supply chain have increased this further to 300.
In a further development bringing production to the next level, global packaging company, Huhtamaki, joined forces with Bloc Blinds to massively increase production of PPE for healthcare workers. The two companies are set to deliver on an order of over 30 million Bloc FaceShields for the NHS. With Huhtamaki now on board using high speed packaging lines, an additional 400,000 pieces of equipment will be manufactured daily.
The partnership means Bloc's unique design can now move to the next level and help more front line workers and in the incoming weeks Bloc will continue to assemble in Magherafelt, be able to continuously work to scale production to meet the untold levels of demand and provide more vital PPE to more people.
