Corona virus update – Tuesday 24th March 2020

Teknomek remains open to provide hygienic equipment to the UK Food and Pharmaceutical industries which are essential for the safe production of food and drugs. Before the Prime Minister's announcement on Monday 23rd March, we had already adopted procedures and practices that maintain social distancing whilst at the workplace to ensure the safety of our team.

- We have split our teams into shifts that are separated by time & morning / afternoon; day-on/day-off

- We have segregated areas in the factory with locked doors to ensure that teams cannot mix

- We have introduced home-working and paperless working where possible to reduce the risk of contact

- We have separated individual workstations to ensure a minimum distance of 2-3 metres is maintained

We will continue to provide this service as long as we can whilst ensuring as far as possible a safe working environment for our team.

We are currently still working at full capacity and it is business as normal. 

Corona virus update – Wednesday 18th March 2020

At Teknomek, we understand the pressures you are under and as always, we are working hard to support you and give you solutions, rather than problems.

Business operations

We are managing our supply chain so we can continue to manufacture here in the UK so you continue to have reliable on time delivery. We have increased stock that we source from elsewhere, so we are confident that that we will be able to keep up with increased demand including next day delivery for risk-management products.

Coronavirus Kit

We're holding stock of selected products that support you in the fight against Corona, so they are ready to ship rather than make you wait the 10 days.


We have contingencies in place to maintain staffing levels and are taking multiple steps to ensure the safety and comfort of staff including multiple anti-bacterial dispensers in high traffic areas, new hands-free bins/waste bags and our constantly monitoring the situation to ensure personal safety.  

We’ve set in place a series of contingency plans so that customer service, production and warehouse can continue to deliver the right service.

Site visits & surveys

Our staff that go off site to come and meet you have adopted a wealth of technology including GoToMeeting conferencing, Microsoft teams video calling and WhatsApp. This enables you to contact us through a multitude of platforms so we can get a good idea of your requirements and we can show you products. Any physical meeting can be changed to a phone or video call if required.


Our drivers will only collect and deliver in their area. As our pallet company ships to a depot network, no driver will collect from an infected area to deliver to an uninfected one.

Finally, we are constantly monitoring the situation to ensure we can be reactive, protecting you and your teams. As a UK manufacturer we are closely monitoring advice from the government. Any changes or updates we will update this blog and share on social media and via email so you can stay up to date with the situation.

Please note: we are currently working at full capacity and it is business as normal.
