Goole Building More Ukraine Ambulances

Andrew has provided an update following his latest visit to Venari in Goole to see the ongoing work to provide ambulances for Ukraine. 

Andrew said, "It was great to pop to O&H/Venari in Goole yesterday to see yet more ambulances being built for service in Ukraine.

"The whole team at O&H have done such an amazing job, especially in the earlier days of the conflict when all production was set aside to manufacture armoured and field ambulances for Ukraine. 

"I am so proud that our town is continuing to help aid this conflict with another handful of ambulances recently being ordered by the Ukrainian government. Whilst this is supporting jobs in our town, far more important of course is the medical and life support it is providing to those fighting Russian aggression and this appalling invasion. 

"As time goes on and we face rising energy prices and food prices here and around the world as a direct consequence of this conflict, fatigue can set in. As much as things might be painful in this country and across Europe as we deal with the effects of this conflict, we must never lose site of what is happening to the Ukrainian people living under attack and bombardment. 

"Well done to everyone involved in this project and I am so pleased that we are continuing to make a contribution from here in Goole. "

Oliver North, CEO of Venari Group says, "Our team at Goole and across our business are full of pride knowing that we are playing a part in saving lives in this terrible war. At times, our teams have worked around the clock to ramp up production and get these vehicles to the front line where they are needed. We will continue to support Ukraine in whatever way we can and are proud to have been called on once again to build more of these vehicles."
