BCB International has 70 years’ experience in helping to keep people safe. So it was no surprise that the firm was one of the first in Wales to turn its attention to fighting the pandemic.
When coronavirus first hit, the firm turned over production at its Llanelli factory to a super-strength hand-sanitiser working shifts around the clock and taking on 30 staff.
Now that restrictions are beginning to lift, the company which designs and manufactures a huge range of survival and protection equipment for the military and police, has innovated new products. A Back to Work Kit and Keep Safe Travel Packs contain protective, quality, tested products to keep people safe as they go back to work and begin to take holidays again.
BCB is also actively supporting charitable organisations donating supplies of sanitiser and PPE.
"Our commitment to our community remains a core focus. We have developed specialist products to assist organisations and individuals in the fight against the pandemic, and we make time to support charitable organisations."Andrew Howell, Managing Director
How we did it.
BCB is among Wales’ oldest and most trusted companies with a long history. UKSE has been involved with them for many years, providing loan support to underpin expansion at crucial points in the firm’s development.
UKSE recently invested £100,000 to aid expansion as BCB developed additional production capacity at Llanelli to complement the Cardiff base.
