Today, England has entered a second national lockdown. Non-essential businesses must close.
Every worker at businesses that don't close must work from home, if they can.
Businesses that stay open must have implemented social distancing measures to keep staff apart. Sometimes this is not feasible in manufacturing and machinery plants, meaning staff numbers are either greatly reduced, or facilities are closed completely. So production capacity is, at best, greatly reduced - or must cease altogether .
Government furlough payments have been extended and it is against the law, for those participating in the scheme, to work.
This is not only affecting us, but also many of our parts suppliers, and comes whilst the electronics manufacturing industry is still recovering from delays caused by the previous lockdown.
At Lucoro, staff are now either on part-time furlough or on full-time furlough, regrettably cutting our productivity to a tiny fraction of normal output.
During November, we regret that delivery of current orders will, now, be unavoidably further delayed. Also, telephone calls may be routed to staff at home and we will not be accepting any customer or supplier visits to our premises. Luckily, Lucoro is in a strong financial position to ride-out this second lockdown, so we can assure those customers who have paid for orders that they will receive their delivery at a later date. However, if this gives any cause for concern, we can issue refunds.
We send our best wishes to our valued customers and suppliers.
