COVID-19 | Our Approach to Social Distancing

Social Distancing Measures

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.
