Doncaster technical engineering company, and Club Doncaster official partner, SMTXtra have invested in producing medical masks.

SMTXtra is a family owned business, well established globally in the electrical products and engineering service since 2007, and were one of the first to sign up to Club Doncaster’s official partnership model.

The company invested in production lines of medical masks in May and finalising the reconstruction of its warehouse to ensure a safe and sterile environment to produce up to 1.7 million masks by the end of August 2020.

The owner of the company, Sean Cassidy said: “When we bought fact masks for our employees in April, we were shocked at how unsafe an of poor quality they were.

“This was a wake-up call for producing high quality protective face masks that would be safe and easily supplied to national stores and NHS organisations.”

Amongst the company’s main objectives is to be competitive on price, while offering superior quality products manufactured right here in Yorkshire, to lessen the reliance on inferior quality imported masks.

Many other organisations and government bodies struggled to get an effective and quick supply of protective equipment earlier this year. SMTXTRa acted in this demand as quickly as possible as it has capacities and engineers to build and expand in personal protective equipment and general face masks

Supplying and supporting businesses nationally is now more important than ever, thus SMTXtra introduced the PPEXtra brand that will focus on medical protective equipment, creating jobs and opportunities whilst giving back to the local community.

As the number of unemployed people in England rises, PPEXtra is building skilled worker jobs with adequate salaries at the same time as supporting employee’s wellbeing integrity and diversity. Despite the national lockdown, the company’s team spirit has remained high, along with their passion for delivering products around the globe which in turn has contributed to the creation of jobs.

PPEXtra will start manufacturing by the end of August and start selling to local retailers and online to start

Until new and effective vaccines are available, there will be a risk of becoming infected. Lowering the risk of spreading Covid19 is how SMTXtra wants to play a major role in the fight with this global virus.
