PICKERING'S BREXIT STATEMENT
The decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, known as BREXIT presented many questions and concerns for all businesses both in the UK and the wider EU. Pickering was no exception to this and took a very proactive stance in implementing change to ensure our customers continued to receive the highest possible standards.
The measures taken include: –
•Implemented change to our distribution network, to allow for full distribution of product sales from either our headquarters in the UK or one of our EU, Czech based subsidiaries.
•Continue to maintain our full vertically integrated manufacturing capability at both our EU facilities in the Czech Republic and in the United Kingdom.
•Increased our own internal stock of component parts to mitigate the risk of supply chain issues, a measure we have kept in place to ensure we continue to offer the shortest possible lead times.
•Under the technical guidance of our R&D management, Pickering’s design teams continue to operate from both within the UK and EU.
•Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) has been granted to Pickering Interfaces Ltd. Authorization type is AEOF (Full) Customs simplifications, security and safety. Authorisation number is GB AEO F/00128/18. Or further details click here.
•Introduced a new dedicated customs department to manage the additional administration required for both importing and exporting from the EU.
These measures ensure that BREXIT now has no impact on our ongoing operations.
Pickering continues to monitor global trade and believes that our financial security coupled with the measures already taken will give our customers confidence in our ability to meet their requirements.
