14.05.2020AEON is now part of the Crown Commercial Service Register
Coronavirus has had a huge impact on all areas of life and business. Most notably, our public services have been stretched beyond belief, with dedicated key workers handling an unprecedented number of requests.
At AEON, we’re pleased to announce that we are offering our services to the public sector, as part of the Crown Commercial Service register. Covering a number of areas within manufacturing and engineering, we’ll be offering our services to those that critically need it during the COVID-19 outbreak.
We were contacted by a number of our partners, including the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, Staffordshire Growth Hub and IMECHE, who were asking specifically for engineering support. And, due to our experience in highly regulated projects (i.e. aerospace), the CCS were incredibly eager to get our services on their register.
What is CCS?
The Crown Commercial Service was set up as an executive agency and trading fund of the Government. The CCS plays an important role helping the UK public sector save money when buying common goods and services.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, it has played an especially important role to collate the thousands of offers of support and services from business all around the UK.
What we can offer
We have a number of in-house services that could really benefit public sector areas, especially those within healthcare and medicine. We can assist in areas such a contamination control – which is the control existence, growth and proliferation of contamination in certain areas.
In addition, we have 3D printing facilities and a full CAD operation. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, 3D printing has made huge waves in the production of essential PPE for front line workers over the past few months.
We’ve previously completed a number of projects which have demonstrated strengths which could benefit the public sector. From the complex and highly regulated space projects - such as optical windows and surface treatment testing – to intricate product assurance projects.
We can bring a number of best practices from this work and positively impact the healthcare and medical industries. Rob, our Director, has previously spoken about the need to exchange best practices inter-industry to make real improvements in the way we work.
