Hello, I’m Nick Smith, CEO of Bott UK.

We’re a provider of workspace storage and in-vehicle conversions.

With three operations across the UK, and over 400 employees, employee safety is our number one priority.

To enhance this we’ve increased social distancing by marking and spacing out the workspace areas, by alternating shift patterns and of course reducing visitors to our site.

We’ve increased the hygiene practices, and prominent signage around the operations as well.

Under new ways of working, virtual conferencing has now become the norm for many of our customers and colleagues.

Communication has become increasingly important, particularly to get feedback on a daily basis from the floor, to make sure that any ideas and concerns are addressed.

We’re all learning these new norms, and will continue to work with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and of course take best practice advice from manufacturing organisations such as Make UK. So thank you, and best of luck.
