We are in unprecedented times, facing challenges we could not have foreseen. The safety and well-being of all our employees, their relations, our customers and visitors throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is and will remain our highest priority.
In response to the recent changes in government guidelines with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, Omron has taken the decision to temporarily close our Milton Keynes HQ. In accordance with government advice, this will be effective from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December. Omron will continue to monitor and respond to any changes in government guidance.
Omron is fully committed to maintaining our high levels of service throughout these difficult and challenging times, all our UK staff remain working and at your disposal, albeit remotely. Our external sales and applications team will not be permitted to make site visits during the lockdown period, however, can provide remote support using the latest remote desktop and augmented reality software tools. Our contact methods remain unchanged, so please continue to reach us via phone, e-mail and web.
As of today, our global manufacturing operations and European Distribution Centre remain fully operational. We are also unaware of any significant disruption to freight entering the UK and Ireland, as such we are expecting to offer full continuity of supply with regard to order shipments.
We take our social responsibilities and the well-being of society exceptionally seriously and will continue to review our operating practices, if there are any further changes, we will notify you as soon as possible.
For further information please contact your usual Omron contact who will be happy to assist.
