HAM BAKER PIPELINES - COVID 19 - 25th March 2020

 

UK SITES TO RE-OPEN

Dear Customer,
We want to play our part in helping the country overcome this crisis and are committed to positive actions to support colleagues and customers in this collective effort.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening, 23rd March, we took the decision to close all UK distribution branches, warehouses, offices, and manufacturing facilities while we sought urgent clarification from the UK Government about how we could operate our business within the Government guidelines.

Government have now confirmed that construction sites should remain open, as should manufacturing and supporting distribution businesses provided they are able to adhere to the Public Health England guidelines. Therefore, we will now begin a phased process of restarting our manufacturing and distribution operations this week.

We have been asked why we are re-opening our business so I want to address that issue directly. Our priority remains the welfare and wellbeing of our employees, customers and suppliers; therefore, we hope you appreciate that we acted responsibly in pausing operations to take advice. It’s clear that Hambaker Pipelines plays a vital role in enabling critical Utilities, Local Authorities and Healthcare Service Providers, maintain the Infrastructure, Drinking Water and the sanitation necessary to sustain us all during this difficult time and the livelihoods of all concerned. 

We are continuing our social distancing and hygiene measures across our whole business and taking necessary actions designed to limit the risk to the health and wellbeing of colleagues, customers and suppliers alike.

Through an extraordinary time, my colleagues throughout Hambaker Pipelines continue to rise to the challenge and I am truly grateful for all their efforts and dedication, as they strive to provide our valued customers with the goods and services you need.
