Thomas Dudley Foundry Ltd welcomes the recently released letter aimed at the UK manufacturing sector by Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Alok Sharma. He reaffirms the ‘critical contribution’ of those still working in the manufacturing industry during this unprecedented time in the UK.
Sharma underlined the importance that UK manufacturing businesses play in keeping the economy running and supporting our national supply chains by saying “Manufacturing is a critical part of our economy and I would like to be clear that there is no restriction on manufacturing continuing under the current rules.”
Thomas Dudley Foundry continues to manufacture and supply to the Construction, Utilities and Merchant supply chains, working to ensure continuity of supply to our markets whilst monitoring government guidelines on the safest work practices to protect our employees and our customers.
Alok Sharma went further to say: “you are contributing to the resilience of our nation and I am grateful for the enormous efforts you are making in order to support the UK at this testing time.”
We are confident that as a UK manufacturer having multiple sites, high levels of raw materials and finished goods this will allow us the flexibility as and when demand and labour availability change so that we can remain agile as a business to satisfy our customer orders.
