In view of
the clearly deteriorating situation in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic, we
have decided to do all possible to protect our staff. Consequently, we are
essentially shutting the Gelderd Road site in Leeds for the next 3 weeks.
at this decision we have also taken into account our position in the
aftermarket supply chain, recognising that with the universality of Bulb
applications we are not considered as being a critical Vehicle Off The Road
(VOR) parts supplier.
with exterior lighting being a safety critical component on any vehicle, we
also have an obligation to the Road Transport Industries in order to keep the
Supply Chain moving.
have ensured that there are enough key stocks in our national/regional
wholesalers & distributors, we recognise that there may be a need for
additional emergency orders. Consequently, we will be monitoring throughout
every day the order input which comes in through the existing platforms incl.
e-mail. We will then be doing all possible to send out all orders judged as
emergency orders within a short period of time.
exception to the above closure is our Ambulance Manufacturing and Supply
Subsidiary – Ring Carnation. Understandably, we will be doing all
possible to keep this business fully operational in order to do our bit in helping
keep the NHS open and functioning.
alongside our industry bodies, we will be reviewing the situation &
our policy on a regular basis and will advise you, our customers, accordingly.
for your understanding.
