“Due to the continued lock down advice from the Government, and virtually no demand from our customers, it has been decided to extend the closure of Rimstock.
Subject to it being safe to do so, there is likely to be a gradual and phased return to work, enabling us to serve some of our key customer base, when they indicate that they will restart production.
We will keep you updated with developments based on conversations with our customers and their requirements, as well as the measures that will be in place to ensure safe working in line with the government recommendations in force at the relevant time.
Thank you for your continued support during this unprecedented and unsettling time and I hope that you and your families stay safe.
