Supporting India's COVID Response
We have teamed up with MRO procurement and supply chain specialist, Entec International, to provide some much-needed support to Covid-hit India.
We have donated first responder oxygen cylinders as well as bedding, which will be consolidated with one of Entec’s oxygen concentrator shipments, destined for the Indian Red Cross, to support ambulance teams during the crisis.
Commenting on the joint initiative, Chris Ward, General Manager at Openhouse Products, said:
“We’ve been shocked and saddened by the dire conditions in India right now, so we felt compelled to offer help in whatever way we could with these donations.
Having supplied our NHS during the height of the pandemic here in the UK, Openhouse are proud to now be able to redirect our surplus resources to those most in need.”
Our donation is one of many that Entec have sourced and shipped, including over 1000 oxygen concentrators.
Entec CEO Mike Robinson states, “We are pleased to be able to continue to support the international relief effort and welcome the opportunity to work alongside Openhouse in providing these essential supplies to India.”
He adds, “Entec will be organising the test and recertification of the cylinders from Openhouse, before they are shipped by airfreight in the coming days. In the meantime, the Indian High Commission has asked me to pass on their heartfelt thanks to Openhouse for their generous offer.”
