Detmold Group Chief Executive Officer Alf Ianniello said that the SA Health Partnership Award was testament to the collaborative work of industry and government on this project.
“We are immensely proud to receive the SA Health Partnership Award for 2020, recognising a significant project for us in localising the manufacture of PPE,” Alf said.
“This could have been an 18month project, but we executed in just 18 weeks.
“We commissioned over 20 pieces of equipment and employed over 200 people.
“To have executed this project at a time of incredible pressure due to the impacts of COVID-19 is a credit to not only our Detmold Medical team, but to our collaboration partners, such as SA,” Alf said.
