Covid 19 statement
At Crest, the health, safety and wellbeing of every employee and all of our stakeholders is our priority.
Throughout this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have taken practical steps, and implemented robust measures, to ensure the welfare of our employees, suppliers and clients.
In line with government, public health and industry guidance, we have closed our office in Woolwich and showroom in Clerkenwell with staff working from home in order to continue to provide a service to our clients.
As a result of the reduction in our income, we must manage our cost base as best we can. In this context, we have taken measures which will protect the long-term sustainability of the business whilst mitigating the impact on staff. These include reduced hours of working and placing some staff on furlough.
We are still receiving a number of orders and enquiries relating to ongoing projects and for support furniture for COVID measures.
We recognise that this is a particularly challenging time for the workers who continue to deliver our services. It goes without saying that we are doing everything in our power to enhance the safety of those involved in fulfilling our services and to mitigate the risk of infection.
All staff are rigorously adhering to social distancing regulations, and regular briefings are being conducted to highlight, and reinforce, safe working procedures.
We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will implement any necessary changes based on the advice provided by the government, public health agencies and industry bodies.
At the appropriate time we will reopen our office and showroom on the basis of working under the strict guidelines in place.
We would like to express our thanks to our employees, and to all the key workers across the country, who are making such an enormous contribution in these uncertain times.
