Eurocell, the Derbyshire-based window, door and roofline PVC product manufacturer, is to reopen, with the latest guidance from the Government permitting tradesmen to work in domestic dwellings so long as appropriate precautions are taken.
On 11 May the firm recommenced supply to its fabricator customers from existing stocks and opened six branches around the country, to test its safe-working practices and begin to assess the level of customer demand.
The company said: “We are encouraged that trading over the first three days has been robust, although it is not yet clear whether this is a result of pent up or underlying demand.
“Subject to the on-going results from these activities, and in particular there being sufficient underlying demand, we plan a phased re-opening of the business over the coming weeks. This includes a return to manufacturing when required to ensure continuity of supply to customers.”
The fit-out of Eurocell’s new warehouse remains on track and is expected to be operational early in 2021.
