Like the majority of businesses who supply and work with the events industry, B.S.B. has been hit by the global Coronavirus pandemic in a very sizeable way. The majority of our events, currently until August 2020, have been cancelled or postponed. This is sad for us and heartbreaking for the event organisers we work with throughout the year.
In terms of business resilience, we are plodding on – just like every other company in the UK. Our staff are taking some time off and we have scaled back our day to day working environment. The offer of help by the government has been well received and we are in a good position financially to see the crisis through.
We are able to continue supplying the electrical trade with items through our trade counter service, but again – this is operating slightly differently. Whilst we have bare-bone staff at our HQ most days, managing accounts and answering the phone, we are able to supply over the counter. For any large or abnormal orders however, we recommend ringing ahead to secure items.
Huw is still working closely with his customers across the world, supplying engineering products from B.S.B. (Isoform), and hopes to continue to do so.
We very much hope to be back to normal in the not-too-distant future. In the mean time, please stay in contact with us through our social media channels, email or telephone. We are here to help and we are happy to give advice wherever we can. More importantly – stay safe, healthy and happy. We will see you on the other side!
Martin and the whole B.S.B. team
