Pillarhouse Working With The Electronics Industry To Fight COVID-19


Reading time ( words)

Pillarhouse International is pleased to be supplying Selective Soldering Systems to a number of key, UK-based, electronic equipment manufacturers to help in the battle to defeat COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This week they will deliver two new Jade Mk II and PillarGEN nitrogen systems to DVR Ltd and an additional PillarGEN nitrogen system to Jaltek Systems. Along with another Pillarhouse customer, Nemco Ltd, these companies are all helping in the manufacture of life-saving ventilators. 

Whilst Pillarhouse is currently operating greatly reduced staffing levels, due to the UK government’s isolation policy, these Selective Soldering Systems have been assembled and tested from scratch in less than 5 days. Managing Director, Nigel Monk, said “I believe that it is very important that Pillarhouse can help play an active role in helping tackle COVID-19.” He went on to say “I am immensely proud of our Pillarhouse employees, who stepped up and helped, get this equipment out so quickly.”
