Covid-19 CUSTOMER UPDATE 31 MARCH 2020

Dear Customer,

The current situation is clearly unprecedented on many levels, and we have all had to adapt to new ways of working in a short space of time.

The commercial, technical and accounts office staff have continued to remain connected (virtually) with the business by means of “Working From Home”, and have been able to maintain the high levels of BPW service. To safeguard all personnel continuing to work on site at BPW Limited, additional safety measures are being carried out daily and adapted as the situation develops.

We have proactively entered into dialogue with the supply chains for critical services and supermarkets to ensure that they have a secure supply pipeline for essential items required in their repair and maintenance of BPW running gear at this critical time. The supply of BPW parts from our Legion Way parts warehouse to our distribution network continues to operate as normal.

Reviewing the current economic climate daily, and the short notice UK trailer builder shutdowns as a direct result of the Covid-19 outbreak, it has however been necessary to implement a shut down of the UK assembly operation, effective immediately from 31 March 2020. This is expected to last until at least Wednesday 22 April, subject to review of government guidelines. During this time:

1) No further axle orders for trailer builder operations will be available for despatch.

2) BPW’s Legion Way distribution warehouse for BPW spare parts will continue to operate as normal.

3) The German and Hungarian BPW production plants will also continue to operate.

4) You will be able to maintain contact with BPW via the normal telephone and email routes, which are directed to our “Working from Home” employees.

Our guidelines are under constant review; please check www.bpw.co.uk for further updates and changes to our services. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards, and Keep Safe.



Steve Turton, Managing Director and Neill Groves, Sales and Marketing Director
