COVID-19 stakeholder statement from Ibstock Plc
The Coronavirus situation continues to develop rapidly in the UK, and has been predicted to escalate significantly across the coming days and weeks.
We wanted to provide our valued stakeholders with an update as to our contingency planning for the Coronavirus – and the steps we are taking to mitigate against any potential impact on our service offering.
Alongside upholding our duty of care to all primary stakeholders, we are also committed to maintaining normalcy across our operations. To that end, we:
• Are currently following and implementing government advice and will continue to do so – ensuring we can continue to operate ‘business as usual’
• We are not exposed to raw materials or finished goods coming from outside of the UK and are uniquely positioned as a British manufacturer that our goods have an average radial delivery mileage of just 62 miles, with 95% of our raw materials sourced on-site from UK quarries
• Have developed a series of contingency plans for each of our factories and support functions, which at this stage of the government guidance, would enable us to continue producing and supplying products and services
• Are working in close collaboration with our supply chain partners to develop and implement relevant plans to safeguard the continuity of supply to our customers
At all times, safety for all stakeholders remains our ultimate priority. All decision making will continue to be informed via close monitoring and ongoing compliance with government guidelines, with safeguarding our customers and workforce continuing to sit at the heart of all of our processes.
