COVID-19 Risk Mitigation

Supplier shutdowns in the Far-East, extensive delays to international logistics, a gradually increasing pattern of lockdowns and business closures across Europe, and an unprecedented reduction in business activity in the UK.

No-one at the end of 2019 could have predicted that these events would define the first two quarters of 2020.

By executing a risk mitigation strategy underpinned by the dual goals of maintaining consistency of supply alongside resizing liability to reduced sales, Paxton’s Supply Chain team succeeded in plotting a course through the crisis: enabling manufacturing and sales to continue throughout, and minimising the cash impact on the business.
