The health of our people, retailers and customers are our main priority, so we’ve put extra measures in place to ensure their safety. We continue to follow Government guidance to direct our health and safety practices, whilst supporting our retailers with their own procedures, so you can browse our floors, online and in-store, with peace of mind.
We’ve been working alongside our retailers to support them in the transition from lockdown to opening their stores again, with extended health and safety measures in place. We’ve provided a range of materials for use in-store, including safety at work signage for both the front and back of house.
Manufacturing, although at a reduced level, has been ongoing over the past four months to keep stock flowing to our retailers - ensuring our LVT moves from our factory in the West Midlands to your floor as quickly as possible.
Alongside the manufacture of LVT, we’ve been producing and distributing protective face shields for key workers across the UK. Many of our retailers have been supplied with Amtico face shields free of charge, to protect the welfare of their employees and our collective customers.
Keeping our employees and their families safe is a top priority for us, and we have introduced new, stringent health and safety guidelines to ensure our manufacturing and office facilities are COVID-secure.
Our facilities now feature carefully selected one- and two-way routes, we’ve installed numerous hand sanitising stations around site, and are providing disposable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for employees to wear. We have also installed several automatic temperature testing systems in key entrances.
All working employees have been supplied with on and off-site Amtico Operating Guideline booklets, to help guide them through the new health and safety procedures in place.
Where able, a proportion of our office team have been operating from their homes. Video meetings have become the new normal, and we have introduced a range of presentations and Q&A sessions with members of the Amtico Board, to keep remote workers feeling connected.
Since lockdown, we’ve used our manufacturing expertise to produce parts for life-saving PPE for key workers on the front line of the Coronavirus pandemic.
We initially partnered with seven schools across the country, with Amtico running the production of parts, and schools managing the assembly and distribution of the face shields through their supportive network of regional volunteers.
As schools returned to a mix of virtual and socially distanced classes, Amtico took the decision to take sole ownership of the supply of face shields – having now supplied over 70,000 face shields to organisations including NHS hospitals, dental practices, care homes, doctors’ surgeries, schools and high street retailers.
We would like to thank our school and supplier partners for their role in supporting the NHS and key workers across the UK.
