ECF Healthcare & Medical Quarterly

Quarter 2 2020


We hope that you are all keeping healthy and safe, wherever you are reading this around the world.

Our Engineered Coated Fabrics operation has been playing its part this quarter as a key component supplier to help medical device manufaturers globally stay well stocked and ready for quick turnaround times on high demand products.

Internally, we have been shaping our ‘whole package’ offering, as we look to bring you access to an even wider range of technical fabrics for even more applications across the healthcare & medical sector.

As ever, please do drop us a line to discuss your next project – you may be surprised by what we can offer.

Wishing you all the very best

Spot the duck!


There’s a new addition to the Trelleborg Nottingham team, as a mother duck has made her home in one of the service yards behind the factory! The team have been keeping her well watered with her own personal water bucket, and we’re keeping a close eye out for the little ducklings to hatch. Quack quack!
