Business as Usual
In response to enquiries related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we can confirm that we are currently fully operational.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our people, customers and suppliers is of paramount importance. As a business we are rigorously following official NHS guidance to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus – including Stay at home advice should any employees develop symptoms.
Management of the business centre in which we are located have also imposed proactive measures, including (but not limited to):
Hand-washing facilities and hand sanitiser available throughout premises
Closing all meeting rooms
No third-party visitors
Impact on Customers
We are in constant communication with key partners. Production is unaffected – however, we have experienced a notable increase in sales in recent days, which may impact stock levels of some products in the short-term. Naturally, we are being proactive and aim to increase buffer stock of best-sellers to meet high demand. Whilst we are certainly not recommending ‘stocking up’ it may be worth considering should you feel the need to do so to mitigate uncertainty.
Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus. From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels.
