With COVID-19 now presenting a very real threat to the people and economy of South Africa and its neighbouring countries, and with reference to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s declaration of a State of National Disaster, the time has come to address the potential impact of the pandemic on our business and operations.
A global event of this nature necessarily requires adjustment to daily and business routine, and what follows is a brief outline of the steps we’re taking to mitigate its effect.
We’re committed to maintaining the integrity of our supply chain, as much as humanly possible during a crisis of such unprecedented scale. To this end, we’re putting into place preparedness plans for operational safety, supply emergencies and product security, including:
Mobile ITC solutions and cloud-based applications allow our team to offer continuous service remotely.
In the event that our physical office will be forced to close, we’ll be contactable via cell phone and digital channels, and our switchboard will divert to a designated cell phone number.
Our logistics specialists remain available to address your queries and ensure the timeous delivery of your product.
Other measures include:
We continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds on a country, continent wide and global scale, heed the guidelines issued by the authorities and remain flexible in our approach to adapting our plans to take into account changing circumstances.
We wish you, your workforce and their families the best of health, and look forward to seeing the situation normalise worldwide as quickly as possible.
