Equipment supplier Hobart has created a UK-wide engineer taskforce, which has volunteered to remain operational, ensuring they can provide a priority service to key worker sites.
The company has also increased its on-site spares stockhold to in excess of £6m, and a next-day, ‘in-boot' delivery service to ensure minimum machine downtime and disruption.
In a joint statement, managing director of equipment David Riley and managing director of service Keith Mackie said: "The Hobart UK crisis management team is meeting regularly to manage and monitor our operation in light of the ever-changing news on the pandemic.
"While we endeavour to serve all our customers as usual, we do feel it is important to state that we are committed to prioritising healthcare, education, emergency services and food supply chain establishments. We will be working closely with these organisations to ensure equipment is available where most needed."
