At bmi trailers ltd we have decided that waiting for the government to impose a total shut down is dangerous and will cost lives. We have consulted and listened to a great many medical opinions and have decided to act now. See our statement below, we will be closing our doors tomorrow for 3 weeks. We would encourage other companies to do the same.

Urgent call to action.

In our attempt to mitigate the continual spread of COVID-19 we will close all our sites with immediate effect from Monday 23rd March for an initial period of 3 weeks.

The safety of our staff, business stakeholders and the entire community is our No1 priority.

The most effective weapon against the spread of this Virus, as confirmed by all medical experts is self-isolation.

We will ask our staff and every one to please adhere to the correct and official guidelines on self-isolation. This is not a holiday, this is an attempt to save lives .

Only in doing this together will we all benefit from this action. This is a serious matter.

South Korea has been the most successful at slowing the spread of the virus, by a strict policy of isolation, that is working. They have a health care system that has a far greater capacity than that of the UK, our local health care system cannot cope with this pandemic, we must act now.

Please help to spread this message.
