We are committed to supporting our customers during this difficult time, many of whom are essential businesses providing a frontline service in the fight against COVID-19. These include Freight Services, Food Distribution Services, Funeral Services and we are actively prioritising orders from these customers. Our UK manufacturing plants are fully operational and production continues as normal and we are tracking the production status of our partners and our component suppliers to ensure that there is no disruption in the supply chain.
At the same time, the safety of our employees is a major focus of our management. To minimise the spread of the infection a number of initiatives have been implemented. Employees who can work from home are doing so and only those employees who absolutely cannot work from home are travelling to and from work every day. We closely monitor the situation throughout the business and follow Government guidelines on social distancing, hygiene and cleaning and regular workplace sanitisation discipline in order to minimise the risk to all our employees.
Together we will get through this challenging time. Using this opportunity, I want to thank all our employees, customers and suppliers who continue to work hard to ensure the business meets its objectives and promises.
