A LABELLING company is producing large amounts of hand sanitiser to meet demand during the coronavirus outbreak.

Premier Labellers, based in Harwich, has added additional lines into its production facility dedicated to producing hand sanitiser.

The company is now able to produce large quantities of hand sanitiser using its labelling machines and network of suppliers.

Staff are filling, capping, labelling, coding, packing, and distributing about 3,000 bottles per hour, per line, with two fully automatic lines running two shifts plus other smaller semi-automatic lines to keep on top of regular contract packing work.

Tracie White, managing director, said: "As key workers, we now have a commitment to the UK to meet the demand and get these much needed products out to the customer and the public.

"With industry experience, we are able to handle the pressure with minimal downtime, as our expert engineers are on hand to maintain efficient production.

"Our current objectives are to maximise our production up time to meet the demand and help the cause to the best of our ability," added operations director Damian McGloin.
