At this time, it is natural for our customers to look at their key supply chain partners and seek to ensure continuity of suppl. Our Gas Network partners have been designated as Critical National Infrastructure providers by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and have subsequently written to us identifying us as part of their critical supply chain, and requesting that we continue to support them during this unprecedented time. We will only be doing this where we are confident that we can safely operate, strictly observing Social Distancing guidelines. The health of our colleagues and customers is our top priority and we are committed to playing our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
We have engaged with a large number of our customers throughout the critical infrastructure sectors we operate in and as a result implemented new manufacturing processes that enable safe production continuity, fulfil orders and minimise the impact on the delivery of products to stores, direct to sites and the provision of our national stock offering to our key distributors. To continue to provide you with the support you have been accustomed to, we have put measures in place to maintain the commercial and technical assistance that you need, using modern IT and online tools that we have available
We know that the situation is changing every day and we will continue to adapt to meet your requirements, while ensuring the safety and well-being of our colleagues and partners.
Thank you for your continued support.
