The future’s bright(er); the future’s copper

As lockdown gradually eases, we are here for you when you need us The news that more businesses will return to operating in the coming weeks has prompted everyone to consider what needs to happen and not happen. As car showrooms and open-air markets recommence trading next week, with many other shops scheduled to follow suit from the middle of June, there is now a little light at the end of Coronavirus tunnel.

You will be aware that Advanced Alloys has continued to supply copper in a socially responsible way during this time. It is an important raw material in areas such as health, in food production, in communications, in heat exchangers, and not least for the Nightingale Hospitals.

Supporting the Nightingale Hospitals

Advanced Alloys proud to be an indirect supplier to this key NHS initiative You will know that the Nightingale Hospitals are temporary NHS facilities, specifically set up to treat Covid-19 patients.  There are plans for many across the country, but two of the first to be built are at London’s ExCel Centre and Birmingham’s NEC, each of which may eventually house 5,000 beds. As you can imagine, putting the necessary large-scale infrastructure in place in such a short space of time, under extremely difficult conditions, tests the skills and resourcefulness of the construction suppliers involved. Advanced Alloys is supplying copper strip in coils and copper tubing to some of these construction companies.  Whilst never losing sight for one minute of the perils of the overall pandemic, we are nevertheless proud to be playing some small part in equipping these lifesaving hospitals. At the same time, we continue to supply copper products to other key organisations such as supermarkets.
