COVID-19 | Response Update | Reopening
Smiley Monroe has taken the decision to reopen and resume all production at a reduced capacity at our sites in Northern Ireland from Tuesday, 05 May 2020 following the Department for the Economy’s recent publication of a list of priority business sectors that need to continue to operate during the COVID-19 crisis in Northern Ireland.
As a manufacturer of endless conveyor belts and cut rubber and plastic parts, Smiley Monroe is deemed to be an essential business activity, in order to continue the supply chain for the following priority business sectors: quarrying, mining, construction and waste.
Our employee’s health and wellbeing is at the centre of our operations and in order to keep our returning employees and workplace safe from the virus, we have implemented comprehensive safety measures in line with Government guidance.
Smiley Monroe Inc in Kentucky, US opened for production this week and is operating in line with state and federal health and safety guidelines.
Smiley Monroe India based in Hosur will remain temporarily closed, but this will be reviewed again early next week in line with updated Government guidelines.
Our senior leadership Response Team will continue to monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic situation daily.
All our social media platforms will remain active for any updates, and if we can help address any concerns or queries, please get in touch with your usual day to day point of contact or account manager.
Again, we appreciate the efforts of our dedicated team and the valued cooperation of our partners in facing up to this unprecedented challenge.
