DaRo UV Systems in Sudbury keen to spread awareness of benefits of UV in tackling coronavirus as demand for disinfection units increases
Production of disinfection units has ramped up at a Sudbury-based specialist manufacturer, which says it is keen to spread awareness of the benefits of UV in tackling the coronavirus outbreak.
DaRo UV Systems, located on the Ballingdon Hill Industrial Estate, confirmed it has seen a significant increase in sales for its mobile disinfection units, which are designed to disinfect rooms and visible contents, in order to prevent the spread of infection and cross contamination.
The company also previously reported a rise in orders for its UV hand inspection cabinets, which highlight areas where hand-washing needs improvement, since the pandemic began.
The firm is a subsidiary of the DaRo Group, which is headquartered in Church Field Road.
Mervyn Douglas, managing director of the DaRo Group, said: “We, and many of our customers, firmly believe that we need to adapt to the fact that new viruses are not going disappear.
“Therefore, we are looking to our research and development programme to develop future applications of UV in the automated fight against viruses.
“Utilising the group’s movement technology, we will be developing remote-controlled units and products that can be used discreetly and safely.
“It is critical that there is a broader understanding of how UV technology can offer so much at this time.
“We want to support businesses, individuals and organisations to create safer and cleaner environments.”
DaRo has indicated that its sites have been able to continue operating at close to full capacity.
