Available Online: The Spring 2020 Issue of Door Industry Journal

At the time of going to press, our sector – and the whole country – is facing an unprecedented situation in the form of the Covid-19 pandemic which could have easily prevented us from publishing. 

I would therefore like to thank our specialist magazine printers and our own team for pulling out all the stops and making publishing this issue possible.

So, rather than point you to areas of interest in the magazine as I normally do, I want to use this space to offer some information and reassurance.
Firstly, please be assured that the DIJ team are here for you as always. We have remote working in place and you shouldn’t face any disruption in our service to you.

We are still available through all the usual channels and will be issuing any relevant news throughout this crisis, via our blog, email and social media.

Looking around, it appears that companies are trying to continue with business as usual as much as possible. Obviously this crisis will still have an impact, but hopefully the range of financial support measures announced by the Chancellor will go some way to alleviating the losses that many will face.

And I see that firms in our sector are reacting quickly and responsibly, with staff being sent home if they exhibit any symptoms or in some cases closing the business for a prescribed period. Equally, site work can still carry on as normal when possible – and installations can be completed without having to be in close proximity with anyone.

Of course, the health and welfare of staff and clients are of paramount importance, but with a bit of thought and effort we can all keep going as normally as possible!

For now, enjoy the magazine.  I wish you, your families, and your staff all the very best. And I hope that by the time the next issue goes to press we will all be living in more certain times.
