Announcement: ASSA ABLOY COVID-19 Update

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, addressed the country on 23rd March 2020, to announce the unprecedented steps required to save lives and protect our hospitals, due to the rapid increase of coronavirus cases in our country. As a business we have taken the decision that our employees’ welfare must take priority and therefore we will close our operational facilities for the foreseeable future by 27th March 2020. We envisage this may be at least three weeks but will review this situation continuously.

During the temporary shutdown period we will still be operating technical and some sales administration support to our customers but we will not be able to process or despatch orders or sample requests. Please continue to use your usual contact points and we will work to provide the support that you need during this period. 

These are challenging times and the situation is constantly changing. Over the coming weeks we will constantly review our contingency plans and operations to ensure that we respond in the very best way to these changing external conditions and Government guidelines and advice. We will take every action to ensure the welfare of our employees whilst providing support for our customers. We plan to emerge from the COVID-19 outbreak as a strong and highly capable business which our customers can rely upon as soon as the UK economy restarts. 

We wish you, your families and colleagues a safe period ahead and we will keep you informed if the situation changes. 

Best regards,

Harry Warrender

Market Regional Manager
