PennWhite; Covid-19 Update (18th May)

An update from our Technical Director:

Eight weeks into the UK pandemic lockdown and PennWhite continues to operate as close to normal as possible. Orders are being processed, products are being manufactured and finished goods are being shipped to customers across the globe.

Our office staff are still working from home and have been pleasantly surprised by the robustness of the IT and telecoms systems we put in place in preparation for a potential lockdown back in early March. Laboritory, production and warehouse staff continue to work a socialy distancing shift pattern and observe responsible Covid-19 working practices, as they have done throughout "phase 1" of lockdown.

Over the last two months we have played our part in helping customers in key industries ensure they are able to provide vital services and products and are commited to doing so for as long as this crisis continues. Over the last few weeks we have started to see an increase in orders from other sectors and look forward to providing these customers with the products and technical support they need as they emerge from lockdown.

In April we underwent a remote ISO 9001 audit (we passed) and expect to be audited remotely by our halal and kosher certifcation bodies during the next few weeks. Both the kosher and halal audits have been delayed by the lock down and we appreciate our customers patience whilst our FoamDoctor products are awaiting recertifcation.
