Kentec Electronics Statement Regarding Coronavirus (COVID 19) 16 Mar 2020
Dear Kentec Customers and Visitors,
In an effort to you with information on the potential impact of the Coronavirus for Kentec, please read the following statement:
We are following all guidance issued by the UK Government and international/overseas Governments and we will continue to operate as normal as possible given the current global situation and support our customers with supplies of products.
We have already implemented all the precautions advised and taken further measures to eliminate the potential risk, particularly in regards to:
- Employee welfare
- Visitors welfare
- Continuity of supply of products and services
- Transport and logistics
Our priority is to ensure the well-being of our staff. We are maintaining close communication with all employees, domestically and remotely and have taken precautionary measures to ensure their safety, including a reduction in travel to and within certain countries.
It is necessary for all visitors to carefully consider if the meeting can be held using web or conference call facilities and have request they complete a risk assessment before travel to our offices.
Our communication with our suppliers to date indicates that we currently have no supply issues, therefore we estimate that the direct business impact on Kentec will be low. Furthermore, both Kentec and our key suppliers arranged for additional stock to be held at our and their premises to cater for any disruption in relation to Brexit which did not come to fruition.
We will continue to mitigate the risk of disruption to our customers and will provide you with further updates as necessary.
Kevin Swann – Managing Director
