Keeping An Eye On Brexit
Whilst our industry has started to feel the impact of change in 2020, there are ongoing concerns in the face of Brexit, skills and labour shortages, increasing price of material and potential import shortages amongst other things.
With Brexit looming and whilst it will not have a direct impact on our workforce or projects, we are keeping a close eye on how the situation is developing and the challenges we may have to overcome.
“I am talking to our key supply chain weekly at the moment, and constantly monitoring the material supplies and lead times, in the run up to Brexit. We have contingency plans in place should we need to place pre-orders for materials. In addition to our key supply chain, we also benefit from having our own 2 acre site and COVID19 safe warehouse, for safe storage of materials if needed, which will enable us to keep continuity of work for all of our clients”.
