ICG has been helping North West healthcare product manufacturer, Vernacare give something back to local communities in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The industry-leading manufacturer of infection control systems based in Chorley and Bolton produced a limited number of face coverings with the same, innovative fabric it uses to make tubular bandages.
Vernacare donated more than 500 face coverings to a number of charities and ICG’s PR team has been circulating the story to the consumer and business media with coverage appearing in the Bolton Evening News, Bolton Journal, Lancashire Business View and Business Mondays so far.
ICG was asked to design the packaging for the CoverMe product and an accompanying leaflet with information about how and where to wear it, care instructions and information about the benefits of the product.
During the early months of the coronavirus pandemic, Vernacare increased production by more than 60 per cent to supply products to frontline workers from single use disposable items to IPA wipes which help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The teams worked round the clock to distribute vital supplies across the UK and to over 50 countries - among one of the first orders was a consignment of disinfectant wipes sent to Wuhan, China.
ICG supports Vernacare on a variety of projects, producing marketing material for its range of hygiene and surgical solutions including brochures for patient hygiene, personal hygiene and skin care. Work is currently underway for two product rebrands.
