Statement on Coronavirus/COVID-19
Our primary focus is the health and safety of our employees and ensuring a continual supply of stock reaches our customers. We have initiated contingency plans to ensure the business continues to run as seamlessly as possible.
The majority of SS20 stock moved prior to Chinese New Year. We therefore have 99% of our SS20 stock in hand, and our UK and USA warehouses have their own measures in place and are ready to dispatch.
Talking Tables welcomes and is ready to accommodate e-meetings via Zoom, Skype and other video platforms during this time to ensure ongoing conversations to plan for both SS20 and AW20. You may book calls at any time with our sales and support staff.
We have experienced some minor delays in production however, all our suppliers in China are now back to business as usual. Priority lines have been expedited. Talking Tables have a diverse supply chain with global partners in China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Europe, USA and the UK. We have used this opportunity to accelerate our supply chain diversification in these regions, plus confirming orders early and ringfencing production capacity with our existing suppliers.
Alongside this, we are rolling out a detailed H&S policy to protect our employees from Coronavirus. This includes preventative measures such as self-isolation and homeworking for employees where required. We have a robust I.T. network to ensure all workers can continue to work from home and keep the business functioning.
We are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) travel advice websites on a daily basis. We have put all business travel on hold for the foreseeable future and we are monitoring employees personal travel so that they do not visit countries where Coronavirus incidents are on the increase.
We are continuing to monitor this situation closely and appreciate your continued support during this time.
