Cellbond’s priority continues to be the health and wellbeing of staff, customers and all partners at this challenging time – this is our top priority and main focus at all times but especially during this global crisis. We are continuing to follow official guidance from the UK Government and health authorities regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how we operate, while working to protect the wellbeing of our customers, employees and suppliers.
Alok Sharma, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, stated that manufacturing is a critical part of the UK economy and there is no restriction on production continuing in the UK under the current rules. In line with this, we are maintaining operations to ensure we meet our customers’ requirements, while also protecting the health and wellbeing of our team and ensuring high standards of quality are maintained. Stringent distancing requirements are being upheld with full PPE provisions in place where manufacturing operations mean closer working.
We are working closely with our supply chain to minimise the impact of temporary closure of some of our suppliers and ensure we have alternative options available. In some niche fields this may not be feasible but where this is the case we will be contacting customers as early as possible to advise of issues. We are also continuing to work with logistics partners and while there are additional challenges in this area we are working hard to ensure customers do receive deliveries as much as we can. There may be some delays, but we are aiming to minimise these.
We are avoiding all business travel during this period and encourage those who would normally visit us to do the same. Staff who can are continuing to work remotely using a variety of methods to maintain high levels of communication internally as well as externally. If you have any questions or need some support or guidance please contact us as you usually would.
Cellbond sincerely thank our staff team, as well as our customers and suppliers, for your support during these challenging times.
