National Floorcoverings Ltd’s response to Coronavirus
31 March 2020
Tuesday 31st March 2020
Further to the statement made on 25th March, National Floorcoverings Ltd would like to provide a further update to all its customers and stakeholders on the changes made to Group activity due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Group can confirm that due to concerns surrounding the safety and wellbeing of its employees, it will be closing the manufacturing operations of Heckmondwike, Paragon Carpet Tiles, Mat.Works and Playrite on Tuesday 31st March, until further notice.
Although a hard decision to make, the Group values the safety of its staff above all else and therefore decided to carry out the aforementioned closure.
National Floorcoverings Ltd will issue a further statement once manufacturing operations are re-opened.
However, the company would like to reassure its customers that companies across the Group are available to take orders from its range of extensive stock, using the normal channels, with staff following remote working procedures. Despatch is also operating during this time to ensure orders are fulfilled.
At this time, the Group, and all its employees, would like to thank the NHS and all other support workers that are working tirelessly to combat the virus. That is why we are giving priority to all ongoing and new orders that are required for frontline businesses, or NHS departments, that may need the Group’s support during this time.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch your relevant sales contact, whether that’s at Heckmondwike, Paragon Carpet Tiles, Mat.Works or Playrite. If you don’t have any details available, please visit the relevant company’s website.
Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to wish every one of our customers, and their families, good health and we hope you all stay safe in these unprecedented times.
