This has been a difficult time but it’s good that there have been no ventilator shortages – thanks to British businesses and the government working together to secure more. As part of this, the government ordered 15,000 ventilators from a group of British businesses that won the ‘Ventilator Challenge’ – many of which have now already been assembled by STI, here in North East Hampshire!
All the committed local staff at STI are doing great work at a phenomenal pace. They have played a key part in our fight against coronavirus and I was delighted to visit them at their brilliant operation in Hook.
This is just one example of the fantastic help and support I've been pleased to see our amazing community providing to others through this crisis – and I understand STI were offered equipment and storage by neighbouring businesses, so thank you to all involved.
