KwickScreen has invented a new kind of portable partition, which creates a private, infection-controlled space for patients. Its patented screens are manufactured in London, and have been deployed in more than 500 hospitals worldwide, including the Covid-relief hospital NHS Nightingale in London. It has sold more than 4,000 screens, primarily in the UK, Europe and North America. During the pandemic, the company met rising demand by expanding into additional factories — many of which would otherwise have closed in the lockdown. The business was founded in 2009 by chief innovation officer Michael Korn, 39, the 2011 winner of the James Dyson award for design. Alan Murrell, 30, was appointed chief executive in 2017. Sales grew from £1.1m in 2017 to £1.9m this year, and are forecast to reach £6m in 2021.
