Dave Allen, Managing Director has issued the following statement:
“With the Coronavirus situation changing daily in the UK, we wanted to assure you that the health and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues is our main priority.
We are adhering to all advice provided by the World Health Organisation, UK Government and NHS and will continue to do so and will follow developments daily.
During these challenging times and unless directed otherwise by the Government, our branches remain open and we are attempting to maintain as normal a level of service as possible in order to support our customers, some of whom are, or directly support, our essential services such as the NHS, police forces and local authorities. Therefore, we are implementing appropriate measures to ensure that we can continue to deliver a high level of service whilst also providing a safe working environment for our people. We have implemented plans to minimise the effects on our business and safeguard our colleagues and we have prioritised working from home for some office-based colleagues as part of that plan. Product availability remains good, however, in order to meet these challenges, there will be some necessary changes to delivery schedules.
All account managers and branch teams are contactable by telephone or email in order to deal with your enquiries and inform you of any changes to your usual delivery patterns. All of our delivery drivers have been given strict instructions regarding hand hygiene and social distancing and will respect and adhere to individual customer’s site rules and restrictions.
All at Premier Paper wish you well during these truly unprecedented and challenging times.
