A Highbridge company says it has developed a new Brexit strategy that will enable it to continue providing its normal service regardless of the outcome of Britain’s exit with Europe.
Briarwood Products says it has built up a reputation for holding the largest stock of fibre cement roofing and accessories at its 21-acre site in Highbridge.
“Our ability to supply stock will remain unchanged despite the challenges presented by Brexit,” says founder Alan Janes.
“We have developed a Brexit strategy so the company can continue to provide a dependable service, regardless of the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.”
“A robust supply chain, as well as carefully planned transport and delivery logistics, means we will have the capacity to fulfil customer demand going forward.”
Briarwood adds that it has invested heavily in its own fleet of lorries and specialist delivery vehicles to ensure they it has full control over the supply chain from factory to farmer.
The company manages its own dedicated European production line to ensure that fibre cement sheets and accessories are manufactured to satisfy market needs.
The vast inventory stock housed at the Briarwood Products warehouse will also help to maintain supply in times of uncertainty.
“Despite the unpredictability of the outcome of Brexit, we feel it is of paramount importance to our business that we can continue to supply our customers in the way we always have done. Our carefully planned Brexit strategy means we will be able to maintain our reputation to deliver stock to our customers when they need it,” added Mr Janes.
