Two planning applications were approved for a temporary structure for the production of hand sanitiser for Cheffins’ long-standing client, CambCol, which is repurposing its factory to supply this alongside other high-quality medical products.

With time of the essence, these two planning permissions were completed in only eight weeks, with the company now fully operational from its enlarged 1200 square metre laboratory at its site in Littleport following the 400 square metre extension. Approval was granted by East Cambridgeshire District Council and will go some way to allow CambCol to increase its production of hand sanitiser and other collagen-based medical products. The new factory in Littleport was officially opened by Princess Anne on 3rd November 2020.
