VI Distribution Continue To Operate And Deliver

VI continues to operate with a reduced number of staff, where possible staff are working from home and in line with government advice the warehouse continues to dispatch orders on a daily basis. 

Supply Chain and Product Update

In order to help keep sites operational and to keep the construction and other industries open, VI are working hard to improve availability of all standard stocked items along with an increased range of cleaning and sanitising products and general site operating supplies, all in line with the government advice and changes to the Site Operating Procedures (SOP). 

One challenge faced has been the break down in certain supply chains, some manufacturers for the time being have closed and others offer a reduced service. 

That said the stock of VI’s most popular items are holding up well. 

One area of stock which has been affected is certain items of PPE. 

Much has been said regarding PPE availability in the press and VI have been seeing this on some of the products that would normally be stocked. 

Understandably manufacturers are prioritising the NHS and healthcare providers and therefore those said items are becoming harder to source in terms of availability and price.
