Measures related to Covid-19
In today’s rapidly-changing environment, our priorities are the health and safety of our employees as well as the protection of our company, focusing on business continuity, cash flow generation and management of operating expenses.
Business Continuity Plans have been implemented at central and country level. The vast majority of our distribution centers and branches are up and running and able to respond to customer needs, including emergency maintenance for critical activities such as hospitals, the food & beverage industry and the power sector. We are encouraging our customers to use our digital and telephone platforms.
“At this critical time, Rexel’s chosen priorities are to protect its employees and ensure business continuity, especially for customers operating essential infrastructure. All the company’s key activities, from logistics centers to branches, are functioning in full compliance with applicable safety measures. The company is supported by the broad use of digital interfaces such as email to EDI and click & collect and these are working well. Our continuity plans allow the availability of products and services for essential, and sometimes vital, needs in a world which cannot run without electrical usage. The duration and magnitude of this crisis cannot be predicted or quantified but be assured Rexel is taking all measures to protect the interests of the company and its stakeholders.”
