Coronavirus Update - 24th March 6.30pm

A MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS (24THMarch 2020)

Due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) our main priority is to ensure the health and safety of both our customers and our colleagues. 

As there is an ongoing need to keep homes and essential buildings maintained, warm, safe and secure, hardware stores have been nominated as essential retailers during this time and are excluded from the non-essential store closures.

For the time being we’ve made the decision that our Braintree branch will be accepting only essential Click & Collect Orders and Home Delivery Orders.  We have temporarily closed our Chelmsford & Bishop’s Stortford branches.

Some of our key distribution centres are currently CLOSED, so some products maybe delayed. You will be notified of this and given the option to wait or cancel your order.  

Please call 01376 327 454 or click our online chat for more details.

Our revised opening hours for the time being will be 8am to 4.30pm.

Take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your community.

Coronavirus Update

Dear valued customer,

I am writing to you today to keep you informed regarding our Personal Protection Equipment supplies.

Due to the spread of the Coronavirus and this now being declared as a global emergency, there are inevitably, going to be some delays on the arrival of goods from the Far-East into the UK.

We are noticing a wide shortage of Personal Protection Equipment varying from disposable gloves to particulate filters. This means that we are finding it increasingly difficult to obtain many of our usual PPE lines, due to them being used within the countries they are produced in, or containers of goods are being held back from shipment due to the virus.

Frank Howard Tools & Fixings Ltd take the quality and level of Personal Protective Equipment we supply seriously and as a result we will still be standing by our BSIF suppliers in sourcing alternative products where we can. There may be a delay of up to 8 weeks on many lines, but rest assured we are sourcing alternative products that offer the same level of protection as those you have been previously supplied.

If you are at all concerned about the status of any of your current orders, please contact the Frank Howard sales office or your account sales representative, who will look into any queries you may have.

We will keep all of our customers updated with the status of our PPE and hope to return to full supply as soon as possible.

Thank you
