GOLDEN ARROW PRODUCES OWN FACE MASKS
Golden Arrow, like many other companies, has struggled to source a sustainable supply of face masks for our drivers and other frontline staff. Instead of giving up or purchasing potentially sub-standard masks one of our buyers and our incredible Trim Shop team have come to the rescue in creating and producing our own supply of quality re-usable masks in-house.
The Trim Shop is responsible mainly for ensuring that our bus seats are repaired and re-upholstered on a daily basis. Their ingenuity has seen the development and perfecting of a prototype mask, which is now being produced in-house by the trimmers.
For now we will be producing 2 500 masks to distribute to staff and then, depending on availability of materials and other factors, we may produce on an even larger scale.
It has not been easy sourcing materials but a specific spun material has been selected for breathability and comfort. This initiative is a fantastic example of the resourcefulness of our staff and the ability to work as a team during even the most difficult of times.
