As a supplier of essential services, such as medical, food & beverage and utilities, it was important for us to be able to resume production quickly whilst prioritising the safety and well-being of our employees.
We took the decision to temporarily cease production at our manufacturing facility in Newtown, Wales for three weeks. This allowed a cross-functional team to establish and implement a wide range of social distancing measures.
We are now fully operational and have resumed normal production, whilst ensuring the safety and protection of our workforce.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and implement additional measures as required.
Our adaptations have since been featured on BBC News and have also resulted in our involvement in the creation of government guidelines. Read more about these below.
Earlier this month the BBC visited our factory in Newtown to film a piece about the measures we have implemented to enable us to re-start production.
Last week the UK Government released a number of guidelines for working safely during coronavirus, including a set of guidelines for working safely in factories, plants and warehouses. We're proud to have been involved in the creation of these guidelines.
The Welsh Government recently published their guidance for employers & employees in Wales to help keep businesses & workers safe. The guidance includes a toolkit where you can find a video all about how we adapted our operations at our manufacturing plant in Newtown.
