The business is stocking higher levels of raw material for manufacturing

It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has created widespread concerns throughout the plumbing and heating industry.

A number of merchants are struggling to build up stock levels, as sourcing some product ranges can become a challenge due to low levels of production as a result of lockdown, potential difficulties in sourcing raw material and social distancing in manufacturing facilities. 

During this time of crisis, RWC and its family of brands – JG Speedfit, SharkBite and Reliance Valves - is doing all it can to support merchants by working closely with them and maintaining high levels of stock.

To ensure that inventory levels aren’t affected by the disruption in the supply chain sector, the business is stocking higher levels of raw material for manufacturing. This can help in prioritising the production of volume products to help merchants in replenishing the stock of high demand items.

As well as working alongside merchants to anticipate the demand for essential products, where necessary RWC is fast-tracking the delivery of plumbing and heating materials required in the construction of makeshift hospitals. The business is also tirelessly working with healthcare manufacturers to supply essential components used in critical intensive care equipment.

RWC is taking strong measures to keep its employees safe on site by following government guidance and practicing social distancing. The company is also limiting the number of people on-site, as well as following an enhanced cleaning regime in all facilities.

The business continues to support customers and answer technical enquiries through remote technologies such as audio and video conferencing.
