Geogrid production at our manufacturing plant in Wuhan, China has restarted and we expect to be back to full capacity in the coming weeks.
Production restarted on March 17th after the Chinese government permitted businesses to re-open, and following deep cleaning of the manufacturing areas and equipment, offices and welfare facilities.
We have strict protocols in place to ensure the safety of our teams and of anyone visiting the plant, which include allowing only one person in an office at a time and social distancing in the manufacturing areas and the canteen. All areas are cleaned and disinfected twice a day and visitors (and their vehicles) are also disinfected on arrival.
Additionally, staff have their body temperature measured and recorded twice a day and must follow strict hygiene procedures, including washing their hands regularly and thoroughly, avoiding touching their own faces and using tissues to catch coughs and sneezes.
Currently all of our other manufacturing plants around the world are operating under strict hygiene and social distancing measures. We are continuing to review our response to the COVID-19 situation on a daily basis, based on the latest advice and guidance from governments in each of our locations across the Eastern and Western Hemispheres. The safety of our staff and customers always remains our highest priority.
