We are following the Government’s advice in regard to the specific exceptions which allow essential businesses to continue in operation. These relate to Construction (including sites and repairs to residences), Manufacturing, Utilities, and Agriculture. They also include Hardware Shops and Builders Providers as essential retail services.

As we are involved in “the manufacture of products necessary for the supply chain of essential services” and the “provision of support services” for the sectors outlined above, we will remain open and continue to offer a service to our full range of customers.

Obviously, given the rise in infection rates it is critically important for everyone visiting our sites to fully adhere to the social distancing and Health & Safety guidelines issued on arrival.

Hopefully, this situation will improve over the coming weeks and I would like to wish you and your families well.

Group Managing Director
