Veka temporarily closes operations

Veka UK temporarily closed operations at its Burnley site from Sunday March 29 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and following Government guidance.

Dave Jones, managing director of Veka UK, said: “For over 30 years, Veka UK, our customers and our people have faced a fair few challenges. And we’ve come through them, by acting quickly, supporting each other and working together.

“We are taking our responsibility during this pandemic very seriously and, as the situation continues to change rapidly, so must we. The wellbeing of our employees, customers, suppliers and community is our highest priority, which is why we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our operations in the UK from Sunday March 29, and ceased to make deliveries after Weds March 25 2020.

“Almost all our customers are also preparing to close their doors this week as the country is urged to stay at home, and we no longer have a significant number of orders to fulfil.

“We are proud to have continued to support our customers as we could, following Public Health England guidelines and setting up a home working network prior to the closure.

“Due to the dynamic nature of the pandemic, we do not know when we will be able to open our business once more, but we will review this in three weeks in line with government advice. When we do reopen, we will work hard to resume our normal level of service, but please be patient with us while we and you adjust.

“As soon as we have any new information, we will share this with you via our website and social media channels in the first instance.

“We thank you for your support and wish you health, wellness and safety during this challenging time. We cannot wait to work together in rebuilding our futures. Stay safe and let’s look after one another.”
