Nick Williams CEO
We responded to the Government call for UK companies to help with shortage of PPE and identified that we had the design and manufacturing capability to design and develop a face visor that would be low cost and able to be quickly produced in bulk in the UK. Above all, we ensured the face visor would meet test standards to demonstrate it was safe for use by the NHS workforce.

Partner companies under the Resource Group umbrella have also been doing their bit. Inspired by a local resident, Ashley Jay, who had been making face shields on his 3D printers at home and giving them away free to the NHS and local care homes, the Chairman of Resource, Nick Williams, assembled a team to manufacture a high quality single-use face shield for the healthcare sector and others working on the front line in the community.
In just a few days, the team turned an existing staff gym facility at Wentloog Corporate Park into a 3D print farm, with 50 3D printers bought from Amazon overnight and have since produced thousands of face shields.
Nick Williams said: ”Our motivation has simply been to help save lives during this horrendous pandemic. We have huge experience in manufacturing and a long track record of running successful businesses in Cardiff and beyond, so if we can help save just one life in our community, that would be wonderful.”
