Volumes up for medical supplier due to swine flu

Following the outbreak of swine flu, distribution company PC Howard, part of Palletways, has seen a 155 per cent increase in the volume of goods it carries on behalf of medical supplier Bioguard Hygiene Solutions.

Stuart Hay, managing director of Bioguard, said: “During the time the swine flu scare was at its highest, we took the equivalent of three months worth of orders in two weeks. 
“Our needs were two fold, we needed to bring extra raw materials in so that we could manufacture more, and we needed to ship manufactured goods out to clients as quickly as possible.  Knowing that we could rely on PC Howard to make this happen was of vital importance to our company.”
