Vogue (UK), the UK’s largest manufacturer of premium designer radiators and towel warmers, has announced that has resumed manufacturing operations this week.
The company had continued operations during lockdown with limited staff, and has now established a remote sales team in order to meet demands for contracts and answer any technical and installation queries.
Vogue also announced that it will continue the roll-out of new designs and corporate branding this year, and design teams are already working on collections for 2021 and 2022.
Sales Director, Steve Birch, says, ‘As a market leader, naturally we have contingency plans for all sorts of events, and we have continued our operations during lockdown with limited staff, whilst ensuring we can service our customers with increased stock levels. This week we are pleased to announce that we have resumed our manufacturing operations along with polishing and plating capabilities for our customers. Lead times may be a little longer than we would usually anticipate but we are fully committed to meeting market demands and play our part in supporting retail, construction and home renovation projects nationwide. Our location in the heart of England ensures that we can get our British handcrafted products to our customers quickly as we are close to so many world-class transport hubs.
‘First and foremost we are protecting our employees, our customers and communities by establishing a remote sales team and supporting our key logistics staff to ensure we can meet demands for contracts and answer any technical and installation queries. We are ensuring that all Government guidelines are being followed to the letter with super-stringent hygiene, social distancing and appropriate protective equipment for our in-house team.
‘Going forwards, we have prepared for a number of scenarios depending on how the lockdown is eased to ensure that our supply chain continues to run smoothly and efficiently. Our senior management team is constantly attuned to our team’s health and wellbeing including regular check-ins with warehouse staff and those working from home as we monitor the latest advice from the government and the CBI’s dedicated Coronavirus hub so that we are alert to any changes and can take the appropriate actions swiftly’ Birch concluded.
