Covid-19 Update: We Carry On

We know that Covid-19 has caused a lot of uncertainty in the manufacturing world. We want our customers and the community to know that we will continue to provide pallets to keep the supply chain going. Many of our customers are hard at work manufacturing essential goods such as food and medical equipment; we are determined to keep them going! At the same time, we want to keep our workers safe. This is why we have taken the following steps:

SOCIAL DISTANCE

  • We have restricted access to our office area: drivers should remain in their trucks until we bring the paperwork to them, or report to the outside receiving hut
  • We ask anyone with cold symptoms not to come into work
  • Social distancing is mandatory: staff and visitors should not be within 2 metres of each-other at any time
  • We will not schedule any sales calls or visits to or from other companies

We are following government recommendations and doing our best to adapt to this new situation. The community is much stronger if we work together. With this in mind, we are open to new ideas and want to work with our customers and suppliers in the effort to flatten the curve of Covid-19 spread. We also ask that our customers be respectful to our drivers who are putting themselves at risk to deliver pallets to those who rely on them to carry on. We can weather this storm, but only if we all pull together as a community.

Keep safe everyone, and remember-we’re all in this together!
