Our COVID-19 Statement

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

As the impact of coronavirus is felt across the UK and many other countries, you may have concerns about how it could affect your deliveries from Protex. These are uncertain times and the situation is continually developing, and we would like to provide you with reassurance that we are monitoring the situation very closely.

Our supply chain is robust and we source from multiple suppliers, both local and worldwide. Protex carries stock of all standard items, and there are currently no Covid-19 related stocking issues. We are not experiencing any disruption at the moment, and our production capabilities are operating normally.

Protex manufactures and supplies many customers who are included in the list of critical sectors of industry, including medicines & medical equipment manufacturers, food production, chemicals, oils, gas, electricity and water, agriculture and defence. Furthermore HM Government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has written to manufacturers advising them that manufacturing is a critical part of our economy and they would like to be clear that there is no restriction on manufacturing continuing under the current rules.
