We are fortunate that many of our staff have been able to work from home in the last few weeks. Our Sales and Specification Team continue to be on hand to provide independent advice and support to Architects and Construction Professionals who are working in the same way. This will continue and we are grateful for your cooperation as we all adapt to working in different ways.

Four of our larger depots (Cannock, Hemel Hempstead, Leicester and Shirley (Solihull)) are operational and running a limited Delivery service to assist Contractors wherever possible. Our staff are trained in and are expected to follow Contactless Unloading and Loading procedures and full adherence to social distancing.
