COVID-19 Update – 6th January 2021

Further to the recent announcement that the UK and devolved nations move into a third national lockdown we remain open and operate in a safe and sensible manner. As an integral part of the UK economy the construction and manufacturing sector is allowed to stay open and we continue to supply materials for construction sites. Please see below a reminder of how we are operating securely to provide continuity of supply.

Our People

Our key priority is the health and wellbeing of our people and business partners, and we continue to help protect everyone in the business in line with our health and safety practices. All our branches remain open, but we are increasing the number of people working from home where possible and will be ensuring those who are most at risk are shielded. Our teams have already adopted safe ways of working in line with Covid-19 guidelines and are aware of their personal responsibilities to minimise the transition risk.

Branches & Operations

Our branches and operations are fully open and are COVID-19 secure in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our Trade Counters remain open for collection by appointment only using our call to collect process. Please continue to schedule appointments for collections by contacting your local branch and follow the instructions provided by the team.

Goods-In

Any delivery drivers arriving at our premises must follow the instructions displayed and must contact our Operations Team before driving into the site. Delivery drivers will be required to wear a face covering any time they are outside of their vehicle.

Supply & Deliveries

Our drivers follow a COVID-19 Safe System of Work guidance in line with our existing Safe Operating Procedure for Delivering Goods. This ensures any risk is minimised and follows the hands, face and space guidance. We are working closely with our supply partners to ensure continuity of goods in and stock availability.

Thank you for your continued support and please keep safe.
