Locks Stocked As Lockdown Unlocked

With those many fabricators that chose to close during the coronavirus crisis now planning to re-open, hardware supplier Kenrick is geared up to supply after the shutdown.

Having implemented a number of safety measures to avoid the spread of Covid-19, the West Bromwich firm remained partially operational during the lockdown with a team taking orders and dispatching products from Kenrick’s extensive stock of hardware. Now, the firm plans to gradually increase staff numbers and delivery schedules to match volumes as more fabricators re-start.


 “We continued to supply the industry during the crisis and we’re now planning to scale up the business over the coming weeks as more fabricators open their doors.”

Health and welfare

"The health and welfare of our employees and customers is paramount and we’ve introduced strict protocols to allow for a safe return for everyone," continues Jones. "We will be following all government advice and we will of course only continue to do this if it is safe and sensible to do so.

“We’ve been preparing for when the restrictions are eased and more importantly, we’ve been helping our customers to get ready too. We’ve kept in touch during the shutdown and responded to some of our customers' more pressing needs. With many of them keen to reduce costs, boost margins and secure their supply chains, they’re confident that we’re here to deliver what they need when they re-start production.”


Technical expertise

Kenrick has pledged to support its network of fabricators in every way it can during the pandemic. Currently stocking one of the widest ranges of window and door hardware, door furniture and architectural hardware for PVC-U, aluminium and timber systems, the firm also provides technical expertise and after sales support to assist customers as they get back to work.
