The decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, known as Brexit, presents challenges to businesses across both the UK and the wider EU. Whilst in the transition period up until the 31st December 2020, we continue to monitor the situation and potential impact on our operations and will be reviewing our mitigation strategy regularly.
Some specific actions that we have already taken to prepare include:
Putting in place measures to ensure that our materials supply and production remains robust and relevant to the changing status of Brexit.
Expanding the stock we hold, so that we are in a good position in the coming months to satisfy all our customer’s orders for SureCav.
Our raw-material suppliers indicate that where materials are specifically purchased against customer purchase orders, these will continue to be purchased and stocked in the same way. They have, as much as is reasonably possible, taken steps to ensure continuation of stock during December 2020 / January 2021 and onwards should there be any adverse trading conditions because of the UK’s departure at the end of December. Our suppliers envisage cross border logistics taking additional time and are recommending that customers forecast as much as possible ongoing usage of any materials which may originate from within the EU.
We will, therefore, continue to monitor the situation so as to have systems in place to mitigate any unforeseen events as much as possible.
Despite the political uncertainty, we are confident that our planning will enable us to maintain the high level of customer service and support you have come to expect. We will keep you informed of any significant changes or updates as events unfold.
