For almost 100 years Lennox, an Irish company that specialises in supplying scientific, industrial and laboratory goods, has sold products into "anywhere that has a lab".

From frontline workers to jewellers, pharma multinationals and schools, the business can provide an A-to-Z of items needed, whether it is air clearer recirculators, microscopes or water analysis equipment, Lennox can supply it.

While business has been steady down through the years, the Covid-19 pandemic turned things upside-down overnight, with demand for its personal protective equipment (PPE) sky-rocketing.
