Here at Tufcot we are still manufacturing and engineering our materials and I just wanted to explain why we are doing this.
Tufcot produces thousands of parts every week which are used in many areas that are included in key sectors that are vital to keep going through this period.
We need to make sure that these crucial sectors and services are maintained with parts so that everyone at home can continue to stay there and use their services as normal.
We provide parts to the Marine, Oil and Gas, Rail, Renewable, Agriculture and Food Processing sectors, it is crucial for the supply of our energy services that these sectors continue as unaffected as possible during this time.
The UK Government provided more clarity over the weekend stating – ‘Not everyone can work from home. Certain jobs require people to travel to their place of work – for instance if they operate machinery, work in construction or manufacturing.’ This includes Tufcot so we will be aiming to stay open until the Government advise otherwise.
We are reviewing the situation daily but have weighed up that, for the greater good to the key services we supply to and following the Governments guidance, we must continue to produce our parts as best as we can at this time.
