Aptus Fasteners Services Update:

First and foremost we hope you are in good health and we thank you for your business and patience during a very challenging time. We are fully operational at our site observing all Covid protocols and those of our team who can work from home are doing so.

For the foreseeable future we will not be physically visiting customers or suppliers out of respect for the safety of your staff and ours. Likewise we are discouraging visitors to our site for the same reason. Your usual contacts are available via phone, email and video call should you need them.

Site visits may be possible post lockdown on request but only if these can be conducted safely. We are expanding our social media platforms and we encourage you to follow us.

In common with most of our industry the past few months have been a challenge, managing stocks in light of the global supply and logistics crisis. You may be aware of the severe congestion at UK ports at the end of last year. Whilst this has improved and shipments are flowing more freely now this is far from the end of the story. There are challenges throughout the supply chain. Raw material shortages, energy cost rises, shipping and customs delays.

The devil is in the detail of anything like this and we have lots of background data available which we are happy to share with customers on a request basis. Please contact the office or your usual contact for more information.
