“Since restaurants have reopened, orders have picked back up again, enabling us to return to producing products for the sector.”
Mr Angelucci confirmed the company would continue producing PPE and added: “Social distancing looks set to stay for the foreseeable, so our aim is to be part of the long-term solution by making a full suite of PPE products that can be used by employees across a range of settings, as well as the public.
“Increasing our workforce will be key to achieving this expansion.”
Transcend was supported in its switch to producing PPE by Life Sciences Hub Wales – which has been appointed by Welsh Government to manage offers of support from businesses towards NHS Wales.
Cari-Anne Quinn, CEO of Life Sciences Hub Wales, said: “Transcend’s products have helped protect key workers all over the country and their efforts to help the frontline are commendable.”
Welsh Government’s deputy economy minster, Lee Waters, said: “The way Transcend Packaging has adapted its operations throughout this pandemic is a testament to its resilience and versatility.
“The company has not only survived but thrived as a result and is helping us in our efforts to protect people.
“It’s great news that new jobs have been created for those living locally at what remains an extremely challenging time for our economy.”
