Westminster Group receiving unprecedented levels of interest in its fever screening services

So far this year it has dealt with more than 500 enquiries from all over the world for fever detection and associated equipment, resulting in sales of roughly US$720,000

Westminster Group PLC -

Westminster Group PLC (LON:WSG) has said the supply of fever screening and associated equipment will represent a material element of its business this year.

The company is a recognised provider of security and safety screening equipment and has previously seen demand for its services during previous epidemics such as the Ebola virus and the Bird Flu outbreaks but “nothing on the scale we are now seeing”.

So far this year, the group said, it has dealt with more than 500 enquiries from all over the world for fever detection and associated equipment, resulting in sales of roughly US$720,000; last year, it had no enquiries about its fever detection capabilities.

“We are currently handling an average of 28 enquiries per day and our teams are working hard to support our customers in these difficult times particularly with the potential disruption to supply chains and demand exceeding our suppliers manufacturing capacity in certain items,” the group told investors.

The supplier of managed services and technology-based security solutions made the comments in a statement covering the effects of the coronavirus on the business, which so far appear to be slight.

“Thankfully, to date, we have only suffered minor disruption to our travel and activities. Our West African airport operations have not yet suffered any downturn; indeed, passenger numbers continue to be at record levels,” the company said.
