COVID-19 Update

In light of recent developments at the hands of Covid-19 in the UK, at Abbey Industrial, the health, safety and wellbeing of both our customers and staff is of paramount importance to ourselves and our operations.

In response to government advice this week, Abbey are sanctioning various stringent measures to ensure the upmost safety of our staff whilst mitigating any disruptions to operations. Working beyond the outlined parameters of government advice, we have exercised careful due diligence across our operations from both a sales and service perspective, within all Abbey sites.

Business Continuity

It is safe to say that the spread of Covid-19 has been both extraordinary and unprecedented, and at Abbey, we are acting with due sincerity and severity to do everything we can on our part to help stem the spread of Covid-19. Thankfully our business remains untouched, and we will be taking every active measure to ensure this remains the case.

Our business is currently fully operational with those who can work from home, doing so, and our service team is accommodating shift patterns in line with social distancing and enhanced hygiene regulations. Whilst the delivery team is also acting with due diligence, and remaining completely operational. The teams remain fully reachable via all traditional channels of phone and email and if needed, teleconferencing measures.

Covid-19 is a global health crisis with far reaching implications, and in this time of growing uncertainty we are continuing our stance to plan, prepare and respond accordingly to both government advice and customer requirements. At Abbey, our pre-planned and robust operations strategies are coming into effect to help minimise disruptions to our sales and service processes as best as possible.

MD’s closing thoughts

In these testing times and exceptional circumstances, myself and my outstanding team at Abbey, would like to extend our collective thoughts and wishes to all those who have been sadly affected by the virus. With people at the heart of all that we are, and all that we do here at Abbey, I will personally be ensuring that we continue to serve our customers and the wider community to the best of our collective capacity and ability.
