Sinoboom donates facemasks

Following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in China, Sinoboom decided to assist its fellow citizens, especially those working within the construction and access industries.

Sinoboom personnel conducted a telephone survey to companies across the country in the access sector, to ascertain where resources should be distributed and set about obtaining medical-grade face masks to donate for the use of the companies identified. With the initial calls made on 3 February, Sinoboom staff worked tirelessly to organise the delivery of 136,450 face masks to 731 companies across China. This was achieved by 2pm on 7 February and a company spokesman said it was very touching to receive messages of thanks and photos of the donated masks having arrived at their destination!

The spread of the virus has affected not only peoples’ health, but the economy of the country; Sinoboom’s aim is to help protect those working on the frontline in the construction industry, with the hope that this action will assist in the ongoing development of engineering and construction.  Like many manufacturing companies in China, Sinoboom itself was closed for an extended Spring Break period, but is now back in full operation.
