Supply status during the coronavirus pandemic and the Brexit transition process

We’d like to take this opportunity to reassure our customers regarding our ability to maintain uninterrupted supply of FERBOX continuity strip and Telescopic Connectors in relation to the potential disruption caused by the coronavirus and Brexit.

To address customer concerns, we’ve prepared a statement which explains how we’re managing the key influences on our business, which are:

  • Raw materials origin
  • Inbound transportation logistics
  • Performance of our own supply chain
  • Our local ability to manage adversity

We’re constantly in discussions with our suppliers and we continually monitor government advice. We’re taking all sensible precautions to protect our business and ensure ongoing supply to our regular customers, whose loyalty we value highly.

Although none of us can know or anticipate every potential impact which could arise from the coronavirus and/or Brexit in this unprecedented year of challenges, we hope this information provides reassurance that we have done, and are doing, all we reasonably can to ensure we keep things as close as possible to ‘business as usual’.

If you have any specific concerns which haven’t been addressed, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

All information is current at the time of writing.

You can download our statement in full here.

Telescopic connectors provide us numerous advantages for precast stair installation. Apart from improved time and efficiency, the health and safety gains over traditional support methods are a key driver to satisfy our own needs, as well as those of our clients

Our operational response to the Coronavirus
Following a period of shutdown, we resumed our FERBOX manufacturing operation on Monday 27th April.

To enable social distancing in the workplace, and to accommodate a period of uncertain demand, we are now operating in small alternating teams. Some of our staff will be furloughed until we can be confident that demand is sufficiently restored. Therefore, please anticipate occasionally longer FERBOX lead times whilst we adjust to new safe working arrangements.

To be clear, our business is fully functional, albeit with some reduced capacity. As usual, lead times for bespoke FERBOX arrangements will be offered on an individual enquiry basis. We can otherwise despatch stock items, particularly our range of Telescopic Connectors and accessories, on a next-day basis.

We’re doing all we sensibly can to ensure the wellbeing of our own staff whilst maintaining what we hope will be an adequate service level to our customers. Please stay safe everybody!
