Our response to COVID-19 Coronavirus
We take the threat posed by COVID-19 Coronavirus very seriously. We are monitoring the situation and are following government advice in the countries in which we operate.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We have put in place precautionary measures to protect our workforce and our business partners, and maintain the supply of our products and services to you. These include:
stopping our people from travelling to and from affected regions
limiting all non-essential travel in other regions
stopping non-essential visitors to our sites
using video- and conference-calling where possible
increasing personal and site hygiene measures
working closely with our key suppliers to ensure continuity of supply
working closely with our delivery partners to ensure orders continue to be shipped
WHAT IS THE IMPACT ON YOU?
We are working hard to ensure that our service to you is not affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
As a UK manufacturer using European raw materials, we are not dependent upon any materials or products from the Far East. We do not expect disruption to our supply chain which would affect our ability to ship products to you, although our ability to meet 'just-in-time' orders may be reduced.
Rest assured that we will provide you with further information if this situation changes.
HELP US TO HELP YOU!
We are seeing an increased demand for our products from businesses outside our usual customer base. As mentioned, we use only European-sourced raw materials and our manufacturing is 100% UK-based. As a result, when businesses have been let down by other suppliers, they are turning to us to meet their needs.
We are committed to prioritising our existing customer base but we need your help to do this.
Think about reviewing your stock of Petersen product; it might be worth placing an order slightly earlier than usual so that we can allocate materials and production time.
If you have any questions about our response to COVID-19, just get in touch – call us on 0191 414 0156 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, thank you for your continued support and we wish all our customers well during these unprecedented times.
WE APPRECIATE OUR APPRENTICES!
September is a month of new starts, and it’s no different at Petersen, where our latest recruits are starting their apprenticeships with TDR Training.
We decided to mark this by holding an Appreciate your Apprentices Day last week, celebrating our apprentices at all stages – new starters, those who are part-way, recent completers, and those for whom their apprenticeship is a dim memory…!
It also gave us an opportunity to say thank you to the whole Petersen team who work hard to mentor and support our apprentices through their courses and beyond.
Kevin Bell, CEO of Petersen, said, “Doing an apprenticeship is a real commitment, combining real world work with challenging study. Today was a great way for us to recognise that commitment, and highlight the real contribution our apprentices make to Petersen. I was also keen to say thanks to the team leaders, supervisors and other colleagues who give their time and expertise willingly to help our apprentices develop and grow in their time with us.”
Petersen’s apprenticeship vacancies for 2018 have already been filled, with four new apprentices starting their courses in September meaning that for the year 2018/19, Petersen will have seven apprenticeships with TDR.
