To our customers and suppliers,

The coronavirus is spreading throughout the world rapidly, and the severity of this virus becomes clearer as each day passes. We have been implementing safe working practises throughout our companies over the last few weeks, in line with government guidance, in order to keep our employees, our customers and our suppliers safe. But it is now time to do more.

With the announcement of stricter controls by the prime minister on Monday evening, we have taken the decision to shut down all non-essential works. We are currently in the process of safely and securely closing our sites, from small domestic oil spills right up to our large commercial sites.

As of writing (25/03/2020) most of our employees are working from home. A small number of employees who need to be at our offices or sites in order to carry out their jobs are the only ones who are currently permitted to be working away from home.

With our sites being closed, the difficulty in sourcing supplies and being unable to undertake any new work due to the current restrictions, we envision that soon we will have to take the step of temporarily closing our company. This would be until the government and health service have been able to contain the virus to such levels that would allow the removal of restrictions, ensuring our employees, customers and suppliers safety.

Currently we are still providing our emergency spill response services in certain areas, these are:

  • Northern Ireland
  • Border counties in the Republic of Ireland

We will not be offering this service in Scotland, England or Wales until further notice.

This service will be subject to regular review, and if the current pandemic worsens then we can give no guarantee that we will still be able to respond, as the safety of our employees is paramount.
