Like so many essential workers across the UK and elsewhere in the world, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group is pulling out all the stops to support the global battle against COVID-19.
The company currently builds, services and maintains a wide range of military equipment for armed forces across the world: much of this equipment plays a significant role as part of those nations’ COVID-19 response planning. Perhaps most notable is the iconic C-130 HERCULES transport aircraft which, thanks to its versatility, is so often the go-to platform for humanitarian and/or disaster relief missions.
Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group currently maintains C-130 fleets for several air forces, including the Royal Air Force, and is already seeing growing demand for availability as nations gear up to tackle the current pandemic.
“We are always incredibly proud of the work that we do to protect people in critical situations and that has never been more relevant than right now […] Multiple customers have already been using their C-130 fleets to carry out medevac repatriation missions and deploying them to get supplies to remote areas […] We are also anticipating more demand for medical equipment and deployable infrastructure as armed forces are called upon to support the capacity needs of health services across the globe […] It is vitally important that we are able to stand ready to help in whatever capacity we can over the weeks and months ahead,” commented Chief Executive Officer Alistair McPhee.
