Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Statement

Press Release
27 Mar 2020
Ensuring the safety of our employees, customers and supply chain partners remains our top priority.  


However, we also have to be ready to take action to protect our business at this time.

We have therefore decided to close our merchant sites by the end of this week, with processing sites due to close at the end of next week.

Unless government guidelines change, we are planning to continue running our essential operations, including our continuous cycle manufacturing line, and will ensure that the specialist staff needed to support those can come to work while adhering to social distancing rules.

If you have any questions, concerns, or require support, please get in touch with your local Pilkington UK representative.
