Covid 19 – Hardies support for research in Glasgow

Firstly, you may have read about our support for Covid 19 research recently?

Our statement below was published recently in the British Plastics & Rubber Magazine newsletter and their blog. It was also featured in the Plastikcity newsletter and their Plastikmedia blog.

For over 500 years Glasgow has been at the front of medical advancement. The MRC – University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) is home to the largest group of virologists in the UK. It is playing a leading role in the research response to COVID-19.


Hardies have decided to make a donation for every polymer order we receive in May and June for medical applications.

Fergus Hardie, Managing Director at Hardie Polymers, commented:

“We have been inundated with requests for engineering polymers for medical parts since the outbreak began. Our team have done fantastic work as always to get these materials to all the UK injection moulding companies out there who are supporting this great national effort.

“With Alumni from the University of Glasgow amongst our sales team and a supply relationship with the University too, we want to make a contribution to their excellent work to help defeat this virus.”

For information on all the specified grades that we can offer please contact us today.

So far over 500 donors have raised over £90,000 for front line research. This is helping researchers understand the virus and how it spreads.
