Our Response to Covid-19

One of our core values – the foundation on which Specialist has developed – is that we care. 

It makes sense that this value is demonstrated and visible in dealing with the challenges we face today.

The business community is now experiencing one of the most challenging situations in our lifetime – a threat that has the potential to compromise the health of not just our businesses, but the people we care for.

We take our responsibility seriously in this regard and have formulated our strategy to address the needs of our people, communities, business continuity and our promise to our stakeholders regarding reliability. 

The agility of our business model combined with a committed leadership team have enabled us to respond promptly to provide reassurance. In the below video we would like to take a few moments to walk you through our response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

As a team we will get through this and come out of it stronger, we are keen to bounce back and react to our client’s needs.
 
We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding during this unprecedented situation.

Stay safe and take care of each other.

Final Business Update: Due to business interruption caused by COVID-19

covid19

Specialist Joinery Group has made the decision to re-commence our manufacturing and on-site operations from Monday 20th April.

Initially, this will be a soft start to operations in manufacture and on-site, ensuring strict safe operating procedures and following the latest Government Guidance. 

We are in control of the situation and are proactively assessing these measures on a continuous basis during these unprecedented times.

As before, our sales, estimating, finance, design and technical functions are all still functioning and operating remotely with great video facilities to keep connected.   

You can contact us at mail@sjg.co.uk or estimating@sjg.co.uk and someone will be in touch! 

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding during this unprecedented situation.

Stay safe and take care of each other.

COVID-19: Latest measures from Specialist Joinery Group

covid19

At Specialist Joinery Group we have always been a company that puts people first.  It is because of this we have made the difficult decision to pause activity in production and on-site to protect the health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers and the wider community. 

We have put every measure in place to ensure extremely safe working practices in our manufacturing facility, however we cannot control the safe working conditions for our on-site teams.

From Friday 27th March, all manufacturing and on-site activity will be paused for at least 7 days and this will then be reviewed on a weekly basis. Following this we will have the facility to manufacture and store products on the request of our client base.  Currently there are some limitations within our supply chain following the government announcement, however the Specialist Team can work closely with you to guide and advise on products available.

We also want to provide reassurance that the sales, estimating, finance, design and technical functions are all still functioning and operating remotely with great video facilities to keep connected.   

This is a temporary measure to protect the people we care about and to do the right thing to support our NHS.  We will monitor the situation on a weekly basis and will re-open fully for business as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

As a team we will get through this and come out of it stronger, we are keen to bounce back and react to our client’s needs.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding during this unprecedented situation.

Stay safe and take care of each other.
