It was exactly one year ago today – on March 23, 2020 – when the UK went into lockdown.
What a year it has been – who could have predicted what the next 12 months would hold?
John Reid & Sons Ltd (REIDsteel) was one of the first firms to temporarily shut down its manufacturing and construction site operations – and led the way in re-opening five weeks later when we welcomed staff back into our workshops with social distancing and resumed operations on construction sites.
One year on, we’ve returned to – and exceeded – pre-Covid levels of productivity and are firing on all cylinders, albeit with some differences.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our people, suppliers and contractors remains our first priority.
