Bft Automation - Planning ahead of Brexit uncertainty

The looming deadline of Brexit this March is understandably a cause of some anxiety for businesses, especially as the UK enters a period of political and economic uncertainty. 

If businesses are going to continue unaffected throughout this potentially difficult transition period they need to be certain of their supply chains.

With the media and independent experts predicting that Brexit may lead to additional checks at customs points, there is a risk that imports of equipment and parts from mainland Europe to the UK could be delayed. 

For some businesses who cannot operate without this equipment there could be a significant impact on their day-to-day operations.

In response to this Bft Automation has taken the opportunity to leverage the full capability of their facilities by carrying a significantly increased level stock in the UK. 

Their two distribution centres in Swindon and Stockport provide over 30,000 square feet of space that now have over £2.5M worth of stock in place to support their customers.

The additional stock which has already been shipped from the Italian headquarters means that Bft Automation can continue to provide uninterrupted service and next-day delivery to all their customers in the UK. 

As such, Bft Automation and its customers should be well positioned for business-as-usual, regardless of any supply issues that might be caused by Brexit.

Managing Director Kevin Spinks says:

“Boosting our stock levels in anticipation of Brexit is not about being negative but being well prepared. It is about supporting all our customers to make sure that they have the equipment they need to run their businesses.
“Our customers have come to expect a high standard of service from Bft Automation and we are not going to allow Brexit or anything else to affect this relationship”.
