Customer notification *Covid-19*

As COVID-19 rapidly accelerates throughout the world and many countries have issued new directives in the past days in a response to the status of a pandemic. Many borders have been closed in Europe and in the America’s while China is slowly ramping up again. We would like to re-assure you that SC Innovation is, also within these extraordinary circumstances, actively working on the situation to minimise the impact on our customers.

We consider it our responsibility and main concern to do our up most in order to maximise the health protection of our employees and customers. For this, we want to share with you a series of measures that we have actioned with immediate effect:

  • SC Innovation will remain operational but due to the need to maximise Human Resources, will only be open for business Monday to Thursday.
  • Our Stores Department will remain operational with split teams to ensure colleague safety and productivity.
  • We are promoting homeworking for the foreseeable future for our employees, wherever possible. We will be able to maintain all of our services and operations under this new directive.
  • When homeworking is not possible and an employee needs to be on site, we have taken measures to limit exposures to others.
  • We are limiting all business trips to those strictly necessary for ensuring the continuation of the business.
  • We requested all our collaborators to comply with the WHO regulations.

We will continue to keep you informed of any changes, in line with government advice and we appreciate your understanding and collaboration in these difficult times, which we will overcome as soon as possible.

We wish you all the best and ensure you of our continued collaborative working relationship.

SC Innovation supports local school initiative encouraging pupils to consider engineering as a career

SC Innovation part of SC Group, a company who is an innovation house, priding itself on its unique engineering capabilities from concept through to production build, and through life support welcomed a group of year 11 students from Blundell’s School, Tiverton https://www.blundells.org/.

Blundell’s visit forms part of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiative, https://www.stem.org.uk/about-us, which encourages young people across the UK to engage and achieve in these subject matters and careers within these sectors.

SC Innovation hosted a visit by a group of Blundell’s year 11 students, during which the students were given a tour of the company’s facility at Dunkeswell, Devon, where they were able to see the highly acclaimed ‘Jackal’ HMT 400 patrol vehicle used by British Forces; the Light-Weight Recovery Vehicle designed for the defence sector; and the Lifeboat Launch and Recovery System (L&RS) developed for the RNLI Shannon class lifeboat.  The L&RS project was led by Principal Engineer for SC Innovation Principal Engineer, Engineering Projects, Simon Turner. The students were greeted by Simon, who presented a range of ground-breaking projects SC Innovation has been involved in.

SC Innovation’s Simon Turner said, “With our expertise in a wide range of engineering designs across the defence and non-defence sectors, we are a perfect fit to support the STEM learning initiative.  We were delighted to be able to support Blundell’s school and huge supporters for inspiring young people to develop a career within engineering”.

Blundell’s school, Mr Sal Uddin, Stem Coordinator said, “I have worked hard to raise the profile of the subjects and dispel student misconceptions. Every March for the last 2 years I have been given year 11 for a day and normally, I have had STEM Ambassadors attending and doing hands on activities with the students. This has gone down really well with our students so this year I decided to add a few industrial visits and let the students select. I am very keen to make this an annual event and will happily work with you to tweak the program to give the students a better understanding of the uses of STEM. I know we separately need more engineers in this country!”

SC Innovation is the engineering development and production business division for the group, which solves unusual engineering problems for the commercial and civilian sectors; Civil Nuclear, Off-Shore Engineer, Emergency & Rescue and Oil & Gas, to name just a few.
