Business Continuity Planning

Business Continuity Plan Update 25/03/2020

Our first concern was to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff; those measures are in place.

Business Activities

Our Business Continuity Plans are now in effect to enable us to deliver “business as usual” for those of our clients who still need us. This extends to all our products and services.

Our design and application expertise is still available by video conferencing.

Supply Chain

  • Gree stocks in the UK remain high.
  • Spare/replacement parts remain available from our UK stock and specialist stockists.
  • Our Italian suppliers have reported further clampdown from their government and are closing down production for two weeks.
  • Our logistics agents have advised of increasing difficulty securing trailer transport from Europe; Courier services remain unaffected at this time.

There is no doubt these are difficult times for our country and circumstances remain fluid. We continue to monitor all aspects of our business and will update this plan as necessary.

We wish you all well; stay safe and thank you for your continuing support.
