The ‘new normal’ – post-COVID-19 at Cambs Compressors

Protecting our customers and employees throughout the coronavirus crisis

Working to support essential sectors and keep things running

Like every business on the planet Cambs Compressors was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although many of our wider team were furloughed during the lockdown, our engineering team were working hard as we continued to provide compressor servicing and compressor emergency breakdown support for essential services. The food industry, hospitals, research laboratories were just a few who relied on their compressed air systems running. At the height of the lockdown meant our engineers had to adapt their safe working procedures, implement social distancing and carry documentation to evidence they were operating an essential role.

Contributing to the Ventilator Programme

In addition to this the team at Cambs Compressors also got involved in the Ventilator Programme with a consortium of manufacturers throughout the region. As engineers working at the height of the crisis gave us a sense of proactive contribution when our normal services were largely reduced to reactive support. These were very strange times but as many other businesses and business owners found out - this is when you discover the strengths and vulnerabilities in your team.

"I couldn't have asked for more from the team at Cambs Compressors. The manner in which our people responded to the challenges and pace of change was admirable. I feel an enormous sense of pride at the way in which our team conducted themselves during these unprecedented times. Supporting our customers and each other at a time of great uncertainty demonstrated something I have always felt -we have great people here at Cambs Compressors."

Mark Fryer Managing Director, Cambs Compressors


As the World adjusts to the new norm we have learnt some valuable lessons

Our operations have become leaner, more focused and adapted tremendously to the new 'covid safe' working procedures. Our people are focused on the health and safety of all our customers they serve, as well as the equipment they service. It feels like a huge re-set button has been pressed and people have learnt to appreciate what really matters in life. Lets just hope that as people return to work as the furlough scheme ends in October, we remember this one positive to come out of the experience.
