Haffner Murat Begins A Phased Reopening
Haffner Murat began a phased and controlled reopening of their business on Monday 18th May, 2020. Their full team of service engineers will be fully operational from that date as they commence the first phase of reopening.
Dave Thomas, MD, said: “Our initial priority is to support our customers who are waiting for their new machinery to be installed. The backlog of installations includes nine machining centres, welders, corner cleaners and several computerised saws.”
The sales team will start back on the 1st June and will work from home at this time. The Staffordshire headquarters will also open from 1st June, 2020 with limited personnel working at the site at any one time.
Like all responsible businesses, Haffner Murat are observing all Government guidelines and protocol as the wellbeing of their staff, suppliers and customers remains an absolute priority. Dave said: “We have reviewed and implemented new procedures throughout all business areas to ensure we can operate safely within the correct social distancing parameters and compliance with all Health and Safety procedures. We also have PPE equipment available for use by the team, both internally and externally, to ensure maximum protection at all times.”
As the window industry continues its return to work, the balance between protecting workforce with the need to maintaining productivity and profitability has never been higher. Dave concludes: “Throughout the shutdown we have received regular enquiries from fabricators turning to automation as something that offers a solution for more than just the next few months. We are actively following up these enquiries and look forward to working with our customers once more.”
