Due to the uncertainty surrounding the impact of the coronavirus, we remain diligent and are continually monitoring the latest UK Government guidelines on the outbreak. We have implemented some key operational changes, with the aim of keeping our staff safe and ensure that we are able to maintain our production output during this difficult time. We are working hard to minimise disruption risks for Sylatech staff and our customers. As a key supplier to several critical industries our Company remains open and we do not foresee a need to close at this time or in the near future, unless our Government dictates otherwise. Sylatech is working to deliver customer’s orders to the previously advised scheduled dates.
Sylatech has implemented a ‘social distancing’ approach and this involves changes to production shifts and our staff’s attendance has been spread out across the week. Non-production staff are now working from home until further notice and the IT infrastructure is in place to support this remote working activity. We anticipate that communication with our customers will not be hindered. We maintain a management team on site to assist with operations and key practical business decisions and have implemented strict hand washing with all staff and intensified our cleaning regime. Clearly all overseas and UK business travel has been banned.
Our procurement team has ensured that we have a backup of raw materials and consumables to support production and we are confident that we have sufficient stocks in place.
We remain diligent and will keep you updated as we continue in these difficult times. Please be assured that we are doing everything that we can to minimise disruption and any significant changes will be advised to you as quickly as possible.
If you have any concerns or have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of our sales staff.
