Captain Fawcett Ltd of King's Lynn aids sanitiser production and supports NHS charities
Gentlemen's grooming and accessories business Captain Fawcett Ltd based in Lynn has responded to the coronavirus crisis by preparing hand sanitisers and backing NHS charities.
At McCavity’s Contract Fillers, the manufacturing arm of Captain Fawcett, the whole team is now busy ‘filling for victory’.
Working from the closed laboratory facility at Captain Fawcett, based on Hardwick Narrows Estate, the local business has rapidly reacted to the current coronavirus emergency by shifting production to include hand sanitiser gels and liquids.
McCavity’s are now working at full stretch filling hand sanitiser for a number of organisations who, in turn, supply vital key workers.
The company founder Richie Finney, an Invest West Norfolk Champion and a 2019 Mayor’s Business Awards winner said: “As never before, it’s time to rally round and pull together.
"I’m delighted that McCavity’s and the Captain Fawcett team have responded so swiftly to requests for the hygienic necessities to support the essential services that keep Britain running.”
New products have been introduced into the Fawcett’s Physician range and ten per cent of all proceeds from each Handy Sanitiser bottle and Zam-Buk Soap bar will be going directly to NHS charities.
The Handy Sanitisers and Zam-Buk soap are available to order from Captain Fawcett’s online Emporium www.captainfawcett.com where rigorous hygiene protocol is strictly adhered to at all times.
McCavity’s Contract Fillers offer a complete aluminium tube bespoke filling service. The dedicated in-house team manages all sizes of job from sample runs to gain compatibility and stability testing, through to full production. Each product is assembled and finished by hand with integrated quality control systems offering clients complete traceability and peace of mind.
Captain Fawcett distributes, exports and sells a range of gentlemen’s grooming requisites to customers who include barbers, hairdressers, gift shops, tailors and independent department stores.
The business currently exports to over 45 countries from Alaska to New Zealand and has official distributors in USA, Canada, Italy, Holland, Russia, Norway, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Singapore and Spain.
