Covid-19 Update 09/11/20

Monday 9th November 2020

It is clear from government statements that industries such as manufacturing and construction are expected to continue to function, and as we operate in this sphere and serve key industry sectors, Thorite will remain open for business.

However, we are changing our operating procedures to comply with the new national lockdown and we will ensure that Thorite operates its business in a manner that can keep our colleagues safe, whilst we continue to provide products and services and serve customers.

Our field sales teams will continue to keep in contact with our customers, be that through telephone calls, Teams meetings, or face to face contact. We are clear that under the new guidance that face-to-face customer visits can continue, provided they are necessary, or at a customer’s request.

We will be reviewing our risk assessment created for field sales visits and adding in an additional element that requires field sales staff to do a site risk assessment for each visit. We will also ensure that face coverings are worn, on any site visit and that customer rules onsite are fully complied with.

Concerning onsite service and installations, these will continue with the Thorite Covid-19 Secure procedures we have in place, and as with field sales visits, we will continue with site-specific risk assessments. Similarly, internal manufacturing and workshop functions will continue under similar procedures.

We will continue to keep our trade counters open, as we provide services to essential industries. We have received guidance from the government business department that we are allowed to remain open, but should anything change, we will keep you informed.
