Urgent request to BASA Members to advise plans in respect to COVID-19 and office/plant shutdowns

25 March 2020

I am being asked to feed into BEIS whether BASA Member companies are planning (or have decided to) shut down as a result of the current Covid-19 situation.

If you able to email me in confidence if your company intends to have a shutdown or partial shutdown in the immediate future so that I can co-ordinate estimates for BEIS to help them have a better understanding of the situation, I would be extremely grateful. It would also be helpful to understand the main sector you operate in as some sectors like adhesives for food packaging, are perhaps less likely to shut than those mostly in the automotive or construction sectors.
