After careful planning, our talented team of colleagues have now opened the vast majority of our depots. We are operating from 14 of our 17 depots nationwide, and are working on getting the final three depots back up and running. This means we are able to supply a full range of solutions to customers across the country from a depot local to them.
Throughout the Coronavirus crisis, we have maintained support to our customers for emergency and critical infrastructure projects. Now, with more of our team back at work, we are able to expand our support well beyond that previous level.
As many of our customers return to work, we are proud to be playing our small part in helping to rebuild our country’s economy. However, we do this with the safety and wellbeing of colleagues and customers at the forefront of all our actions.
We are keeping everyone who works for or with us safe through a complete overhaul of our working practices, including reducing the number of people present in any of our locations to allow those present to work at a safe social distance, rigorous cleaning routines for equipment before it is sent to our customers and introducing paperless delivery and invoicing.
Our engineers, sales managers and key professional functions will continue to work from home, meaning they can still offer customers great service.
We are following Government guidelines closely and will continue to expand our capacity in line with the latest advice and at a pace that allows us to be confident that we are keeping our people safe.
Thank you to all our customers and colleagues for your patience and understanding as we continue to work through this together.
Gordon MacDonald, Chief Executive Officer
