Engineering company Rotamec with offices in Pontypool uses NatWest funding to continue supporting NHS during pandemic


Launched in 2000 by Managing Director Simon Brooks an engineering company that provides vital services to NHS hospitals throughout the South West and Wales is using funding support from NatWest so it can continue helping frontline medical staff during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Rotamec, headquartered in Cheddar and with offices in Exeter, Pontypool and Redditch, is a specialist engineering firm that supports multiple sectors with the provision and repair of electrical and mechanical infrastructures and facilities. 

These include important heating and pump systems used in hospital theatres and patient wards, which are under increased pressure because of the COVID-19 outbreak.  

The business, which employs 65 members of staff, also provides services to key food manufacturers across the region, which supply products to major supermarkets.  

Simon said: “Suspending our  operations wasn’t an option for us. Too many key frontline services involved in fighting the coronavirus pandemic rely upon our support to ensure the facilities they use are reliant and operational. 

“We therefore needed to maintain our engineering workforce and worked with NatWest to access the funding we needed to continue working at capacity.”
