Firstly, thank you for visiting our website, we hope this notification finds you safe and healthy and that you, your families and employees are following the Government instructions and playing your part in beating COVID-19.
We have been following the ongoing developments and instructions from the Government intently, and following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening, we have made the correct, albeit tough decision to temporarily suspend 95% of our business and current contracts.
As a long-standing family run company, it is vital we make appropriate short-term decisions to ensure we remain operational for the long-term and that we all return stronger once this virus has been beaten. Obviously, this decision has been made with the best interests of our country, communities, our employees and our customers at the heart of it.
The Directors have made the decision to suspend all existing contracts. These will be put on hold from Wednesday 1st April and will initially remain on hold for the month of April, when the situation will be reviewed, or soon if the Government advises us that work can recommence.
During this period we will be retaining a small skeletal workforce across the business, as we have a number of contracts that support Key Workers and front line organisations that are required to continue to operate. It is important that we play our small part in safely keeping these essential areas of the country operational.
If you believe that you are one of these front line organisations, supporting Key Workers, please could you contact the Hire Desk on 0800 606 100 so we can discuss your specific situation and make a decision on how / if / when we are able to assist.
Whilst we understand that our actions may be inconvenient, we trust that you understand the decisions that we have had to make. Our stance is that if we all play our part in following the Government instructions then the sooner we will all be back operating once again.
Your support and cooperation during these unprecedented times is appreciated.
Shaun Turner Managing Director
