Official Statement for Customers & Suppliers Regarding the Current Coronavirus Situation
Just as you’d expect from the market leaders, we’re being responsible and doing everything that’s essential to look after our people and our customers, and reacting rapidly to changing government advice.
We’re identified as an essential service provider, critical to making sure that the UK infrastructure stays operational during the national response to Covid-19. It’s our job to support the people who make sure the lights stay on and keep the wheels turning.
We know you need us, and we’re still here. We’re continuing to supply our equipment and services that keep the UK going, from the NHS to broadband suppliers, construction sites, police, utilities, refineries and other Government bodies.
We remain open to deliver for our customers, but we’re asking our customers not to come into depots, contacting us using phone or via email instead. To keep our people safe, we're operating a rotational way of working, to maintain maximum social distancing in our work areas.
Every day we monitor the COVID-19 advice given by the UK government, and we’ll respond and update accordingly.
We welcome The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s letter to everyone working in the UK’s construction sector, and appreciate his message: “You are making a hugely valued and critical contribution to the resilience of our nation and I salute you for the enormous efforts you are individually undertaking to support the UK economy.”
Thank you for working with us as we do our best to support you. We are committed to working together as one team, so we have the power to overcome these incredible challenges together.
