Covid-19 : Ongoing Operations


Our employees are our key priority during this time and we are doing everything we can to keep each and every employee safe.

We continue to monitor the Company’s position of remaining open. The Government guidance, which was clarified on the 25th March, is that it is for employers to determine whether they should remain open. The directives given from the Scottish Government state that businesses which support essential services, or where they are capable of working in a way which is fully consistent with established social distancing advice, are able to stay open.

Our Company manufactures items for sectors defined by the Government as Essential, including:

  • Defence and Military protective equipment
  • Healthcare
  • Food
  • Energy

The company created a dedicated Covid-19 team to analyse government guidance and issue internal protocols to all our employees. We are working in a safe and consistent manner that maintains social distancing and good personal hygiene.

Our workforce’s safety, at all times, is our fundamental priority. Their dedication and commitment to ensuring the supply of critical raw materials to our customers supporting these essential services continues to be outstanding. We are already offering our knowledge, expertise and manufacturing capabilities to assist in the fight against Coronavirus.
