Over the last fortnight, as a business, O’Three has followed the government guidelines. Guidelines set out in an attempt to keep and allow businesses that can, to “carry on”. These guidelines were updated and clarified again on March 27th.
We are fully aware that many businesses have no business. O’Three are one of the lucky ones. We have orders that will take us well beyond the end of spring.
Members of our team that can work from home, are. While members of our manufacturing team have been pulling all the stops out, in an attempt to fulfil as many orders as we can, while we can.
Social Distancing has quite rightly meant that we have had to reduce the numbers of our manufacturing team. Along with several of the team deciding that the time for them to remain at home is now, we estimate that O’Three’s UK capacity, as of Monday 30th March could be reduced by as much as 70%. To be clear, O’Three’s production will continue, but at a greatly reduced pace.
In our 31 years, you can count the number of times on one hand that O’Three has missed a date to deliver. We are doing all we can to ensure that these delays are kept to a minimum.
We will be contacting all our customers who might be affected as soon as possible and hopefully with your help, be able to priorities and keep as many of you diving as possible.
