Business Continuity Update
Last Updated: Tuesday 24th March 2020
Businesses, both in the UK and globally, are facing unprecedented challenges with the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 and the landscape is changing daily. At Cullen, the wellbeing of our people, customers, suppliers and the wider population remains the number one priority and we are taking the necessary steps as advised by the UK Government and the World Health Organisation.
The pressure on the supply chain for both medical care and food packaging is substantial and, as an essential link in the supply chain for both, Cullen will continue to operate our corrugate packaging and moulded pulp factories as we navigate through unchartered territory.
In the UK, our NHS is rising and readying to meet the challenges head-on. As the leading supplier of moulded pulp consumables to the NHS, Cullen have been placed on the UK Government Critical Infrastructure list and will continue to support and respect the hard work of those in frontline services and commit to maintaining the manufacture of products they require to do their job.
Cullen manufacture corrugate packaging and moulded pulp solutions that can be found in every British supermarket and across the continent of Europe. As the largest manufacturer of these products, we will strive to ensure the significant and prolonged increase in demand on the food industry is met.
As a company, we can only make these commitments with the drive, determination and good health of our fantastic workforce. We have made all necessary provisions to help ensure their safety and well-being and will continue to assess and balance our responsibilities as a supplier with our responsibilities as an employer.
I appreciate this is a global concern which is evolving each day. We will continue to do what it takes so you can always rely on us.
Director, Robert Cullen Ltd.
