Controlled re-opening ramped up

Epwin Window Systems began a controlled reopening of its Telford operation on May 4, 2020, and has continued to scale up its operation in line with increasing customer demand.

Clare O’Hara, managing director of Epwin Window Systems, said: “I am delighted that many of our customers have reported a brisk pick-up and we have a strong level of immediate enquiries that we are actively working on.

“Of course, while it is encouraging that we are seeing increasing demand, the health and safety of our workforce remains paramount. Before we re-opened, we undertook extensive risk management assessments and developed new protocols to protect everyone. These are constantly being reviewed and updated as necessary to ensure our measures are maintained as more people return to the workplace.”

Measures that the business has put in place include ‘one way in, one way out’ systems at all sites, sanitation stations at all entrance points and PPE for employees working in roles where social distancing can be challenging. Every member of staff is taken through a thorough sign-off process when they return to work and clear signage across the company’s multiple sites reinforces the messaging.
