COVID-19 “Coronavirus” latest update

This is where you can find the latest up-to-date information on how we are managing our production and manufacture of our WIVA™ clinical waste containers and our SHARPSGUARD® sharps containers.

As a key partner to the NHS, and the wider UK healthcare sector, we are actively monitoring all advice/ information and will continue to work closely with all relevant bodies.

With an increased reliance on home-working by the MAUSER team, we would ask you in the first instance to contact us by email on at this time.

As at the 23rd March 2020 update – the highlights of importance are:
  • Whilst we are increasing capacity where possible, we will restrict order volumes/ regularity to normal order levels/ patterns to maintain overall continuity of supply.
  • We are prioritising key healthcare customers and their supply chains at this time.
  • Due to an increased demand for MAUSER Healthcare’s range of clinical waste containers, the regular lead time for WIVA™ containers of 10 working days, is extended to 15 working days.
  • There is currently no impact on lead times for SHARPSGUARD® sharps containers.
  • Please allow us more time to confirm and update you on orders.
  • Please give us as much notice as you can when placing your next orders (do not wait until you have run out or are very low on stock – try to anticipate in advance what you will need).

We will share regular updates through this post and you can view our recent formal communications below;
