Corona Virus Update

19 Mar 2020 / 09:00
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has impacted many businesses over the last couple of weeks, and Apollo is no different. We have been closely monitoring it, evaluating the effect it has, and will have, on our people, our customers and our business operations.
 
We wanted to make it clear that we are taking this situation seriously and that we have already begun to take appropriate steps to keep our business operational whilst ensuring the safety of our colleagues.
First, we have introduced social distancing to combat the spread of the virus. This policy is paramount in reducing unnecessary social contact, keeping it to a minimum within the government guidelines. Other strategies have been put in place, including additional shift patterns, working from home for those able, and the suspension of business travel. These temporary policies have been initiated to ensure that the business runs as normal.
 
Our facilities already have robust hygiene standards and are closely following advice from Public Health England.
 
As a precaution, all industry events and Apollo product training sessions have been cancelled or postponed at this time.
 
Measures in place to ensure normal business operation:
  • The processing and shipping of orders continue as usual with additional health & safety measures implemented in our warehouse and dispatch areas.
  • We are working with our logistics partners to ensure acceptable delivery schedules.
  • Our supply chain remains unaffected.
  • We are holding additional stock of key components where available and appropriate.
  • We are taking steps to manufacture additional buffer stock where possible.
 COVID-19 has presented difficult and challenging obstacles to overcome. It has affected multiple nations, disrupting peoples work and home lives significantly. In unfortunate times like this, it is our joint responsibility to take care of each other, to show kindness and to move forwards with compassion and strength.
 
We are grateful to our people for continuing to serve our customers, their dedication and tenacity are why Apollo has been fighting fit for over 40 years.
