I would like to update you on the current actions we are taking in order to protect our customers, employees and suppliers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As ever our primary focus is the health and wellbeing of our people.  We have continued to take heed of the government advice throughout this pandemic and therefore have decided that from today SAM has shut down all of its production.  We intend to re-start our production from Wednesday 15th April.

We understand that this period of potential economic uncertainty is unsettling, and rest assured we have not taken this decision lightly, but we believe now is the time to do our part for the community by protecting those around us to the best of our ability.

Due to the ever-changing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 we will endeavour to send open and honest updates to let you know our current position.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and continued support throughout these uncertain and challenging times.

With the continuing uncertainty and the ever-changing advice from the UK government, we cannot provide specific guidance at present.

We understand that this period of potential economic uncertainty is unsettling, and we want to reassure our customers and suppliers that we have undertaken risk assessments and have contingency plans in place to minimise any supply and availability challenges that may arise during these unprecedented times.

We have considered various scenarios that may unfold as the situation develops and we promise to communicate honestly throughout the process.  We are monitoring the situation carefully and working closely with our suppliers and employees to address specific risks that we foresee, focusing on supply chain availability, pricing and business continuity.

Whilst disruption is inevitable and the timing unknown, rest assured that senior management are taking a proactive approach in managing this very fluid situation.
