Working safe during COVID-19

05 February 2021

DURING THESE unprecedented times, like many other suppliers, Matrix has had to make many changes to the way it maintains production to work safely.

"The demand for steam cleaning machine technology has increased dramatically. Not only here in the UK, but huge demand from overseas," said company managing director, Bob Pownall.

Matrix has increased production capability, staff production levels have doubled (100% increase) using a local company Perfect Recruitment to find the best qualified staff to join its team.

To work safely and fast to meet all production deadlines has been a challenge in more ways than one, a factory one way system has been implemented to enforce social distancing, and longer factory working hours were put in place to achieve greater production volumes each day.

The factory canteen was deep cleaned to the highest standard to enable staff to reuse but on three staff permitted at any one time, with sanitising taking place before and after each sitting.

Training and support has had to be carried out by offering Virtual Machine Training Courses using video and Zoom meetings, with up to 100 staff in some cases, but through Matrix EOS (Education of Steam) this has been possible.

The future is looking very good; and the American market will be the next chapter of the Matrix success next year.
