We are carefully following the development of UK's anticipated exit from the European Union (January 31, 2020) together with our affiliates. Perstorp has appointed internal working groups within different functions of the organization, in order to assess the potential consequences of BREXIT such a scenario and what appropriate actions need to be taken in order to secure the business going forward.
One possible impact of a hard Brexit would be to create a delay in customs clearance at ports and borders, interrupting the transport of goods. We are committed to working with suppliers and its transportation partners to mitigate any delay in production and delivery of finished goods. The working group has concluded that one of the ways of achieving this will be to arrange additional storage of finished product in strategic locations. However, please be aware that there is a practical limit to this and Perstorp cannot guarantee supplies in such an event. Should you consider the need to build safety stock yourselves in advance in order to mitigate that risk then please get in touch with us and we will support you in that.
