Decision to remain open:
The decision to remain open is based up the government’s advice to the construction & manufacturing sector that: “Its important that we make sure that construction and manufacturing can continue…”* We continue to monitor and will follow further Government instructions and advice.
Deliveries are affected:
Some scheduled deliveries are being affected. We aim to contact customers by email where a delivery date is changed.
Covid-19 Precautions (Protecting our staff):
Deliveries may be affected because in order to continue manufacturing, it has been necessary to introduce a split-shift system that requires no-contact between each shift and a post-shift cleaning regime. The split-shift and cleaning regime reduces the time available for manufacture and when combined with home-working for our production processing staff has reduced our production capacity, which will increase lead times. Only a very small number of our staff have been furloughed.
Dales will continue to review this decision in line with government advice: Please continue to monitor our website for our latest response.
