Immediate changes

Hörmann UK has suspended normal business operations, following the government advice issued on March 23.

In a statement, Wolfgang Gorner, managing director of Hörmann UK, said: “These actions are designed to protect the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and suppliers, something that is of utmost importance to us. We are also acting in line with government guidelines.

“From close of business Friday March 27, all manufacturing and dispatch of domestic garage doors and entrance doors will cease for an initial three-week period. The business will continue to manage pricing and general enquiries through a limited workforce.

“We are preparing for normal business operations to hopefully resume on Monday April 20. We will continue to keep you updated as the situation develops.

“With regard to our industrial customers, normal operations will continue on a reduced scale to ensure we continue to support critical projects. Our service division will be offering its assistance to both Hörmann and non-Hörmann customers that require urgent work on critical sites. This includes servicing and repairs.

“We would like to thank you all for your continued support and understanding during these unprecedented times and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. We hope yourself, your families and your colleagues stay healthy and well throughout this period.”
