Pickersgill Electroplating’s powder coating expertise is playing a key role in helping a world leading manufacturer of emergency medical equipment bring to market ground-breaking, life-saving applications for improving patient care.

Pickersgills is a long-standing supplier to Ferno, whose life-saving patient transfer equipment has been deployed at many iconic locations around the country including Premiership and Championship football grounds. It is Pickersgills’ attention to detail and willingness to evolve its services to meet the ever-changing demands of the medical profession, which impresses Ferno’s Operations Director, Alan Clark.

He said: "Many painted surfaces of our stretchers are in difficult places to reach, but the powder coat finish applied by Pickersgills ensures that any potential for anti-bacterial concerns is removed due to this particular finish. Pickersgills manages to achieve our very high standards and in this fast-changing medical world, we need companies that can adapt to change. Pickersgills has this ability."

Pickersgills’ powder-coating capabilities are well known within the medical sector. Brandon Medical Company Ltd, a leading supplier of operating theatre lights, also deployed Pickersgills’ skills to help bring to market its high quality product, the Quasar HD-LED operating theatre light.
