Where possible, staff are already working from home and can still be contacted as normal via email and telephone.
As a supplier to many key industries who can't afford a break in supply, we are committed to continuing to deliver our market leading service by making our workplace as safe as possible. We are continuously reviewing our procedures and operations to ensure the risk to our staff, customers and suppliers is reduced as far as possible.
