Leading manufacturer of cable management systems, Marshall-Tufflex, has been recognised by the British Chambers of Commerce as a ‘UK Business Hero’ for its immediate response to meet demand for its antimicrobial trunking for the emergency NHS Nightingale Hospitals.

Launched in early October by the British Chambers of Commerce, the UK Business Heroes campaign recognises the incredible work that UK businesses have undertaken to combat the challenges presented by COVID-19. Marshall-Tufflex was nominated by Ana Christie, CEO of Sussex Chamber of Commerce.

The Hastings based manufacturer was approached to supply its anti-microbial cable trunking for the emergency NHS Nightingale Hospitals, which uses a silver ion solution that disrupts key cell functions of bacteria and prevents them from reproducing – meaning 99.9% of harmful bacteria will not survive on the surface.

Marshall-Tufflex completely changed its manufacturing and distribution operation, with the factory running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and factory teams working additional hours and over weekends to deliver the required quantities.

Due to this immense undertaking to make this urgent delivery possible, the British Chambers of Commerce has named Marshall-Tufflex a UK Business Hero 2020 for its incredible contributions.

Since the beginning of lockdown, Marshall-Tufflex has been awarded contracts to supply ten NHS Nightingale and emergency COVID-19 Hospitals nationwide.
