This week more than 120 firefighters helped to tackle a fire that broke out at one of our neighbouring businesses on the industrial site here, in Greenford.
The authorities worked hard to control the area for almost 16 hours however, four warehouse units have been badly affected. While we are very grateful to have been able to resume a full service within 24 hours, our thoughts are with the companies and people who have been impacted by incident. There is a thorough investigation taking place as the cause is not yet known.
As a company we feel extremely fortunate and humbled by the efforts of the teams that worked through the night to manage the fire. We are also incredibly lucky to have such dedicated employees and supply chain partners who managed our customers’ expectations and cleared the back log of orders as soon as feasibly possible.
In particular, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Blerim and the day and night warehouse crew, Paul and the transport team, Maxine and the customer service crew, Nick and our suppliers, Olly and the sales team, and last but not least Derek, our Operation Director for coordinating us through it all so brilliantly. Their efforts have meant that we’ve been able to resume full and normal services and deliver orders to our very patient customers.
We will do as much as we can to assist the businesses on the industrial site and hope that they are able recover as soon as possible.
