On the road – IN’n’OUT IN’n’OUT Autocentres kept a third of its garages open during lockdown and focused on supporting NHS and other key workers. Jon Morgan, CEO, said: “When it all kicked off,


we recognised the importance of keeping the NHS workers mobile, so we offered them free MOTs and half price services. Our priority was keeping their cars safe and roadworthy, so these workers could do their essential work.” All the autocentres are now open, and the


company continues to look after NHS workers by offering free MOTs and 20% off servicing. Pop into the Brackmills centre.


Connector cables – StarTech.com StarTech.com has not slowed its operations down for even a day since COVID-19 struck. The company has been shipping connector cables for ventilator machines to America and Italy. Howard Wilson, Warehouse Operations


Manager, said: “Te team have been working in two shifts – largely to adhere to social distancing. Between these shifts we have a cleaning team come in and thoroughly scrub. We are practicing strict so- cial distancing, even staggering breaks and lunches so there is space. Te staff have been brilliant, and I cannot praise them enough.”
