COVID-19 has affected the world in a way no one could have imagined. Find out how have we coped at Springfield NE HQ and what measures have been put in place to keep our employees and customers safe.
As a 24 hour-working factory specialising in the design and manufacture of precision engineering products, fabrication, jigs and fixtures (to name a few) we wouldn’t say we are ‘getting back to normality’ as we’ve never experienced what some would describe as ‘normal’. Meaning, our services are so varied, we’ve never had two days the same.
To that end, you could say it’s been ‘business as usual’ except with a decreased work force and increased health and hygiene measures to help slow the spread of Coronavirus. We caught up with company Director Marion Milsom who told us all about what measures have been put into place to keep employees and customers safe.
“We’ve placed hand sanitiser at all entrances and additionally, we’ve provided each employee with their own personal sanitiser which is kept at their work station. Wearing masks is essential when it means that social distancing cannot be observed and we’ve provided these, too.
“Similarly to the majority of companies in our industry we did furlough a small number of staff – and they’ve each been issued with a ‘Return to Work’ handbook and of course, we’ve enhanced our cleaning routines to help limit the spread.
“We’re really proud to say that despite operating with only a skeleton staff, our personal, friendly approach to working with our valued customers has not changed. This is due to how much emphasis we place on this aspect of our business operations.”
Springfield NE looks forward to welcoming back its full work force this Summer and there are some exciting things in the pipeline for Q3 and Q4 so that we can continue to fulfill our customers’ needs.
