Maher - COVID-19 Response

Along with the rest of the UK manufacturing sector and its supply chain, Maher has had to adjust to the changes posed by the global Coronavirus pandemic. The business quickly formed a COVID-19 committee as the scope of the crisis became clear in the Far-east, one of Maher’s key markets.

The committee then identified several hygiene and distancing strategies, aimed at lessening the risk to employees & visitors at the Sheffield site.

As this is being written, almost all of Maher’s sales and support teams have established “work from home” routines and essential on-site staff have been instructed on additional measures to restrict the spread of the virus.

This plan was enacted within 48 hours of the UK government instructions to “stay at home where possible” in late March, thanks to continued investment over the years in our IT infrastructure and process, and our dedicated workforce.

The commitment to one of Maher’s core values, “People Matter” has been at the forefront of the company’s response to the emerging crisis, ensuring that none of the just under 100 strong work force is put at unnecessary risk.

Maher will continue to closely evaluate the UK’s response to the pandemic with the management teams in constant contact and holding twice weekly videoconferences.
