    Sylatech, an engineering business in North Yorkshire has successfully implemented a pivot of its business by launching a new product outside its traditional Casting, RF/microwave and machining offering.

    Whilst witnessing dwindling orders in the foundry side of its business and having to put a number of staff on furlough, the management team have implemented an alternate strategy and designed a new product of particular relevance to the Coronavirus. Sylatech has known for many years, that copper and copper-based alloys, have antimicrobial properties and it is therefore highly effective in killing a broad range of bacteria and fungi, and viruses.

    By capitalising on this knowledge and utilising their manufacturing expertise, a team of engineers at Sylatech stepped away from their usual projects to develop a new product called the KeepSafe.

    The KeepSafe is a simple personal handheld device, which enables users to avoid touching handles, buttons or grabbing items unnecessarily. Whether you are in a hospital, shop, or even using a cash machine, the KeepSafe can be used as a simple hooking, pushing or finger mechanism.
