QIH (Quinn Building Products and Quinn Packaging) has donated its stocks of vital PPE to health care workers on the front line.

More than one thousand units of PPE equipment, including masks, Tyvek suits, nitrile gloves and safety glasses have been provided to Cavan General Hospital, South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen and to a number of local community care providers. 

QIH has also been able to source a consignment of surgical masks from its suppliers to donate to the healthcare sector.

Liam McCaffrey, Chief Executive of QIH, said: “Our staff and all our businesses were keen to see how we could support our frontline healthcare workers in their tireless efforts to protect our community and our loved ones.  

“We hope that in some small way this gesture will both show our appreciation and help save lives. It’s the least they deserve.”

The donation of PPE is part of a co-ordinated effort by national trade body the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) appealing for donations of PPE for the healthcare sector across its membership.
