V12 Footwear - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronavirus & Our Supply Chain

In response to a number of questions we are receiving on how the coronavirus could affect the supply chain, we have done a full investigation and would like to re-assure you that this is something we are taking very seriously and are monitoring closely.

Firstly, we have several production facilities meaning not all products are coming from countries that are affected by the virus and currently over 50% are at full working capacity. Secondly, Due to our large stock holding and goods in transit we do not have any supply issues caused by this virus at present, however we are anticipating that a limited number of styles may be affected by the middle of April.

We are committed to supporting and prioritising our approved distribution partners to help minimise the impact to your business and request you email sales@V12footwear.com with your forecasted requirements on specific products for the next few months (please download and use the forecast sheet). We have also made significant investments in additional resource to set up alternative manufacturing for potentially affected products.

Should we have any further information or updates we will look to inform you in good time.

Coronavirus & Our Workforce - What Are We Doing?

Whilst it is important to keep the threat of this illness in proportion, it is also essential that as a business, we take all appropriate steps to limit the threat of COVID-19 as far as possible.  We have implemented the following:

  • We have installed hand gel dispensers at the entrance of the building and in and around the office and canteen.
  • We have sanitised the building as part of a deep clean initiative.
  • We have reviewed government advice to ensure we have assessed all risks and taken all appropriate actions. 

Video Conferencing 

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have set up specific areas within our offices dedicated to video conferencing rather than in-person meetings (especially with European travel at the moment).

Due to the constantly changing situation regarding Corona Virus, we are ensuring that we regularly review to ensure that the control measures we currently have in place are still relevant and effective.

If you have any further questions please contact us by calling 01249 651900 or emailing sales@v12footwear.com.
