Up to now Hazlemere Commercial’s factory and head offices in High Wycombe have been temporarily closed following its closure on Tuesday 24th March, following the Governments advice that we were to stay at home and avoid social contact until advised otherwise.

More than a month on from this temporary closure and halt to all fabrication and fitting, some of Hazlemere Commercial’s staff are now operating from our Head Office on working days whilst the vast majority have been at home as they remain in self-isolation, as the company remains keen to do its bit to help fight this dreadful pandemic. Hazlemere Commercial’s skeleton staff are therefore on hand to ensure that any postal or phone queries are dealt with as soon as is possible and any emails are read and distributed to the right person or department in a timely manner, for when we are allowed to go fully back to work as a nation.

Although Hazlemere Commercial’s estimating team are also self-isolating, they still have plenty of capacity for assisting with new enquiries, existing tender requests and answering and product or pricing queries. So if you have a project you’d like them to have a look at, then please do send it to them via info@hazlemerecommercial.co.uk or call the switchboard 01494 897600 during working hours.

The team at Hazlemere is as keen, I’m sure as you are, to all return to work as soon as is permissible and safe to do so, as being a family owned and run business the Healthy and Safety of all our clients and staff is top of our agenda, and why as a business we were already winding down to close on Monday 23rd March 2020, when the announcement then came that evening that everyone should self-isolate, only go shopping for essentials and only travel if absolutely necessary.

Having carried out the necessary Risk Assessments and after following all new Government guidelines (which state that non-essential construction work is a permissible activity) and taking the necessary pre-cautions to ensure our factory staff and suppliers delivery drivers are able to work in a safe working environment, Hazlemere is re-opening its factory initially with a skeleton staff of fabricators on Monday 4th May 2020, with the aim in the coming weeks, to gradually increase production once the new working practices have bedded in.

We do however appreciate that this is going to be a long haul and we encourage everyone to stay at home and reduce the spread of the infection so by doing so it shortens its devastating effect as well as the length of time it will be before we can all get fully back to work. We are sure by whenever that is we will all be roaring to go.
