The UK Government launched the Ventilator Challenge in March 2020 with a call to arms to manufacturers and medical device companies to step up production of existing designs and design new ventilators from scratch. Cableplus Europe was a key supplier of components and assemblies to the manufacturing consortium that included Airbus, DHL, Ford, McLaren among many other companies. Within a few days we were producing and delivering critical components direct to the Ventilator Challenge consortium.
Cableplus Management said:
"Thanks to the herculean efforts of our staff I am incredibly proud of our efforts during the Ventilator Challenge. We have all worked exceptionally hard with our supply chain to deliver nearly half a million parts, on time and with zero rejects to the manufacturing consortium. The team have all achieved some truly remarkable things together and helped support the NHS when called upon. Thanks again to our incredible employees!"
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
"The Ventilator Challenge has proven just how much Britain can achieve when confronted with a difficult problem – bringing together the best minds in manufacturing, innovation and design.Thanks to these efforts, everyone who needed a ventilator has had access to one, and the NHS has the vital machines it needs to continue providing life-saving support against this deadly virus."
We have had a really busy few days exhibiting at Southern Manufacturing at Farnborough. It was our first time of exhibiting at this show and it proved a great opportunity to meet existing customers and talk with some prospective new ones too!
It was also most useful to use our own LED lighting arrays and wiring to physically highlight the examples of our work, the end result (as below) was most impressive!
We have changed our website and email addresses with immediate effect from cableplus.org.uk to cable.plus
It's shorter, snappier and just our name! Please update your records, but don't worry as old emails and the website will forward onto the new details.
We have just invested in a new company van to help offer rapid same day deliveries to our more local customers. This all helps offer you the best service and local support!
Another hectic and successful year back exhibiting at Subcon 2019 at the NEC! We were even busier than last year and we are really pleased with the volume of sales enquiries we received. It was great to highlight our product capabilities and excellent customer service to visitors at the NEC.
We were pleased to support our local Under 8's football team with brand new training tops. Good luck for the new season lads, they look great!
We have just returned from a successful second year of exhibiting at Subcon 2018. We were able to showcase our large range of electronic assemblies and components and explain the benefits of working with us.
We have had a busy few days exhibiting at Subcon 17 at the Birmingham NEC. It was our first time of exhibiting at the Subcon show and it was a great opportunity to meet existing customers and talk with some prospective new ones too! It was great to highlight our product capabilities and excellent customer service to visitors at the NEC.
The website has been upgraded with a fresh new look. We hope you like the new design!
