BSH UK & Ireland reassures retailers
The UK & Ireland arm of BSH has moved to reassure trade customers following the Group announcement earlier this week that production operations at its factories in Europe, Turkey and North America is being temporarily suspended due to a significant decline in demand affecting almost all product categories and markets.
In a statement released today, the business said: “BSH UK & Ireland has prepared for this situation, and does not envisage any widescale stock shortages during this period and it remains in close contact with trade partners and customers throughout this time.
“The UK & Ireland business is also in regular discussions with logistics partners to ensure operations can be adapted quickly and appropriately to the fast-changing environment and latest government advice.”
The interruption of production at the group’s factories will begin on 28 March 2020 and is expected to last for three weeks.
The company said this could also have an impact on employees who are not directly employed in production or at other locations.
