Macphie has temporarily switched bottling sauces for sanitiser to support the supply of vital equipment to frontline workers.
The family-owned company was commended in today’s (24 April) televised briefing by the first minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon for its efforts alongside other Scottish firms to answer the call for much-needed supplies to help protect key workers.
Working with local distilleries and chemical companies, Macphie has been bottling hand sanitiser from their facilities in Aberdeenshire and North Lanarkshire and has so far contributed around 250,000 bottles to the supply chain.
CEO Andy Stapley said: “We are delighted to be supporting the UK by producing this much-needed product.
“I’m incredibly proud of the ingenuity of our team to adapt our production processes and get this product into the supply chain as quickly, and as safely, as possible.
“As well as fulfilling commercial orders, we’ve donated a number of bottles to local care homes and community groups who are doing incredible things to look after people during these unprecedented times.
“We’ll continue to support our communities and supply chain with production of this product for as long as we can.”
