In an effort to be as socially responsible as we can, GRE have made the decision to close our factory – effective immediately – for the duration of the current lockdown. At things stand, we anticipate returning to work on Tuesday 14th April.
We have spent the last week planning and preparing for this and do not anticipate any major problems or delays in any orders at this time. Our workforce, who are primary concern, are aware of the impact this will have on business and are all motivated to do their utmost on their return to get us back up to speed.
We will contact our customers directly to provide order-specific updates throughout the shutdown.
Most of our non-production staff will be working from home, and the office phone will be diverted to our mobiles, so do please continue to get in touch by phone or email at any time should you have any questions or concerns – we are still fully available during the lockdown.
Everyone has been taking and will continue to take the usual precautions and following current government advice. This will continue on our return to the factory, ensuring that we keep our staff healthy and minimise impact on our business in this strange time.
We will continue to act quickly and decisively as the situation develops.
As mentioned, we will keep you regularly updated, but please don’t hesitate to call either Steve Alford (Commercial Director +44 7568 744584) or Richard Booth (Managing Director +44 7736 390434) if you would like to discuss anything further.
In the meantime, we trust you are understanding of our approach and hope that you can make the most of this unorthodox pause in life. Stay at home if you can, but most of all, stay safe.
Finally, a big ‘thank you’ to all keyworkers, whatever you do, wherever you are – your efforts are sincerely appreciated.
