No stopping for this consortia as they deliver new models and support the national effort in the fight against Covid-19

Whilst supporting the national demand for ventilators and masks during the Covid-19 pandemic the consortia continued the fight against CO2. Helping to maximise this response was a series of new virtual engineering processes which have reduced manufacturing waste, increase recycling capabilities and redesigned battery packaging – saving cost and boosting productivity.
