A new life-saving defibrillator has been installed at the headquarters of the York Handmade Brick Company at Alne, near Easingwold.
The installation follows an appeal by the HeartSafe Communities campaigners in North Yorkshire.
Guy Armitage, managing director of the award-winning York Handmade Brick Company said: "We are delighted to be supporting the HeartSafe Communities programme by installing an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in a prominent position at our factory. This is an excellent campaign which will undoubtedly safe lives and our involvement underlines our commitment to the local community."
Last autumn, campaigners Mike McCann and Matthew Baynham of Heartsafe Communities announced that they wanted to find 15 companies in the county willing to sponsor defibrillators for £1,000 each, in return for having their logos on one of the protective casings.
