Measures in place minimise effects of COVID-19 for customers
Foremost Electronics, the engineering-led Essex based
importer and specialist distributor of electromechanical components, standard
and custom cabinets and enclosures has implemented a range of measures to minimise
the effects of the corona virus pandemic.
Their sales office and technical support team are all now working remotely
and available by the usual telephone and email addresses ensuring seamless communications.
Customer services, including accounts and senior management access, and
marketing functions are also still available if required. These measures will
remain in place until government guidance eases the current situation.
Product stock is being maintained and supplier factories are all
operational with only very minor lead-time increases on some components. Foremost
have not increased their minimum order quantities and are committed to
maintaining their customary excellent levels of service.
Deliveries and shipping are continuing to schedule with warehouse staff maintaining
social distancing requirements. Next day deliveries to UK customers are being fulfilled
as far as possible with worst cases taking only two days and shipping costs
have not changed.
Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, comments, “In our 30 years of
trading we have never had to face circumstances like this. COVID-19 has
affected every part of our business as it has done to everyday life across the
world. We have a dedicated, very hardworking front-line team who are ensuring that
working remotely doesn’t give our customers any different contact experience. It’s
just the same as if we are in the office, business as usual. We are supporting
new and existing customers and continue to work on new design projects which
will lead us out of lockdown.”

markets from industrial, instrumentation, audio/broadcast, rail, medical to education.
