Cheshire-based ModuleCo Healthcare, which provides prefabricated medical buildings for the NHS, has appointed Richard Henry as business development manager on the back of increased demand amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
The company, which has its head office in Ellesmere Port and was founded in 2002, builds modular wards and theatres off-site before delivering them to hospitals across the country.
Henry, who joins a team of 12, will oversee daily communications between the organisation and its healthcare clients, which include multiple NHS trusts across the UK.
Henry joins ModuleCo after a nine-month stint with kitchen appliances distributor EPE International as a regional sales manager. He has also spent almost four years in a similar role at Crown Paints between 2015 and 2018.
He joins the team with more than 30 years’ experience working in business strategy and development and will play a key role in supporting MCH’s clients with the supply and maintenance of wards, theatres and other clinical facilities.
Alan Wilson, managing director of ModuleCo Healthcare said: “This is an incredibly busy time for ModuleCo Healthcare. I’m confident we can make a real difference to the healthcare estate within the NHS in the coming weeks and months, and Richard will play a big part in that.
“We are uniquely placed to provide services to NHS trusts that will allow healthcare professionals to continue delivering their vital work, through the supply of new critical buildings or facilitating the transformation of existing ones to meet demand, without affecting capacity.
Henry said: “Helping the NHS operate as efficiently as possible has never been more important than it is right now.
“The modular construction marketplace is continually growing and improving, and our products are unique in that we have flexible hire and procurement options to work in line with a hospital’s needs, budget and available space.”
