Jaguar Land Rover Commits to Help Fight Coronavirus | Hendy Group

Jaguar Land Rover committed to helping fight against Coronavirus

Jaguar Land Rover has committed to helping the fight against coronavirus by producing over 1,000 visors a week from its Advanced Product Creation Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire. 

JLR's masks will be created by 3D printers and will be reusable, meaning that frontline NHS staff can easily dismantle their visor and clean it before it's used again.  

Ben Wilson, additive manufacturing and prototype design manager at Jaguar Land Rover, said: "It's been a real team effort, as we've trialled different materials and improved the design over several iterations in consultation with doctors and nurses on the frontline. This has allowed us to create something unique and truly fit-for-purpose." 

Further to this, earlier this month JLR announced that they would be donating over 160 vehicles to emergency services across the world. The British Red Cross has taken delivery of 27 new Defenders to help them continue to deliver supplies to those in need. Other models have been shipped out to the Red Cross in Spain, France, Australia and South Africa. 

The Red Cross says that vehicles from both Jaguar and Land Rover will be used "to help emergency teams reach more people living in isolated communities". 

Land Rover has also donated £200,000 as part of its membership of the Disaster Relief Alliance to help the fight against Covid-19.
