With international credentials earned in over 85 countries, a Royal Warrant and over 160 years of design and manufacturing experience behind us, we are small enough to be agile and responsive, whilst large enough to have the technical and engineering competence needed to be one of the world’s leading brands.

COVID-19 STATEMENT (UPDATE)

02 September 2020

Our Operational teams have done an outstanding job and shown huge commitment, attending work throughout the pandemic. It is thanks to them and our valued supply partners that we have maintained a delivery performance of 99.7% in what continues to be an extremely volatile environment.

As schools reopen across the UK, Gilkes office staff have now begun to return to the office after working from home since March.

To ensure that our people work safely in a COVID-19 secure workplace we have carried out a thorough risk assessment and shared the results with our workforce.  Some of the many measures we have introduced include:

  • One-way systems around the building
  • Staggering our office staff so that only 50% are in the office at any one time, whilst the other 50% work from home
  • Limiting numbers in meeting rooms, kitchens and shared areas
  • Cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures

We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain social distancing and keep our employees safe in line with government guidelines. Due to the rapidly evolving nature of COVID-19, these measures are reviewed continuously and amended accordingly.
