We have received updates from some of our critical material suppliers, some of whom closed at the start of this process. With enhanced stocks, we were prepared to ride out this situation. The vast majority of suppliers are functioning now at some limited capacity to support critical suppliers. We too are in a good overall position to respond to requirements.
We are seeing short term demand to support the NHS with spare parts for the oxygen supply chain and scientific instrument spares, so please bear with us for the next three weeks. We are trying to maintain deliveries as originally promised but cannot ignore the demands we are seeing from the Nightingale Hospitals and other key areas.
Our facility still functions and with social distancing and home working to expose the machinists to as little contact as possible, we are open and working to support you.
