Melett has committed to playing its role in keeping vehicles on the road by supporting customers who are providing essential services.
These include those assisting logistics providers, local councils, blue light services, healthcare professionals and other key workers.
It has reportedly introduced staffing measures that enables the company to continue to safely process and dispatch orders within its normal timeframes, and its customer care, sales and technical support teams can still be contacted as usual by telephone, email and Skype.
The company has said it continues to hold large stocks of turbochargers, cores and component parts, and its warehouse and production facilities are working hard to support customer demand, while adhering to essential working guidelines, recommended hygiene practices and social distancing advice.
Darren Johnson, Head of Sales at Melett, said: “The government’s recognition that garages should be classified as ‘essential businesses’ illustrates how important it is that we continue to support the aftermarket during these testing times. This will ensure key workers can get to where they need, and emergency services can operate without interruption.
“We’d like to assure customers that we are doing everything in our power to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, whilst maintaining our ability to serve our customers. We urge customers to stay safe during this difficult time and we will continue to share any necessary updates.”
