ASSA ABLOY COVID-19 Update
Announcement: ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland COVID-19 Update: 7th May
The wellbeing of our people, customers and partners is always our number one priority. We took the decision to close our manufacturing sites and depots from the 27th March following the outbreak of COVID-19. I can today confirm we will be re-opening our sites in a phased approach starting from the 11th May.
We have taken this decision following a series of government updates and strict internal reviews to make sure we can safely resume operations. It has also been positive to see many businesses in the construction industry returning.
Readjustments have been made to continue to protect the health and safety as well as wellbeing of our employees. These include new site entry procedures, implementing regular cleaning and disinfection routines and revised layouts ensuring social distancing measures can be implemented between workspaces, offices and in the canteen.
From the 11th May we will ramp up operations in stages, this is to make sure we can safely enable more staff to return to work. This means we will not be operating at full capacity and over the coming weeks there may at times be some delays. We are working hard to mitigate any delays but ask you to kindly please bear with us should this occur.
I’d like to thank our customers for your patience and understanding during this very difficult time. The safety of everyone has been paramount to our decision making. We’re looking forward to being back open for trade from Monday 11th May and look forward to serving our customers and doing business together.
We wish you and your families safety and good health.
