After months of uncertainty and horror that the coronavirus has brought to the country we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel with countries like Australia starting to reduce lockdown laws. Now we have had the clearest indicator from our own industry that things are starting to look brighter as Ultraframe have released a re-opening statement for its factory meaning that things can at least start getting back to how they used to be.
The statement can be seen below:
“Following the closure of the Ultraframe factory at the end of March, we have strictly followed government advice while at the same time responding to customer queries and requests via a small number of staff working from home. As a result of listening to our customers as well as broad consultation with industry stakeholders, we now plan to re-open the Ultraframe factory week commencing the 11th May.
As we re-open we will bring back our team in line with customer requirements with staff continuing to work from home where possible and implementing strict hygiene, safety and social distancing measures across the Ultraframe site.
We recognise that volumes may take time to recover and during the first few weeks will be operating with a limited workforce so do expect some changes to normal delivery schedules as we try to respond to unpredictable levels of demand.
We encourage our customers to talk to us as early as possible in the order process to give us the best possible chance of meeting requests as we scale up. We have a team available to process orders, quotations and answer any technical queries on the following emails addresses. Quotations: firstname.lastname@example.org Roof Sales: email@example.com Component Sales: firstname.lastname@example.org Customer Service: email@example.com Technical support: firstname.lastname@example.org IS Support: email@example.com Marketing: firstname.lastname@example.org Credit Control: Credit.email@example.com
Although life and work will not get back to normal for a long time, the above statement is a positive move in the right direction to begin the slow process of rebuilding our industry and lives after the covid-19 pandemic. We have still not beaten this thing but if we carry on as we are and stick together hopefully we will be able to move past this sooner rather than later.
Stay safe and stay home.
