Hard landscaping and building products manufacturer, AG has promised to play its part in helping get the construction industry back to work. The family owned business which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year has said it currently has healthy levels of its facing brick, walling and paving products available for despatch throughout the UK and Ireland.
CEO Stephen Acheson also confirmed the business had made arrangements to accommodate pre-arranged product collections and deliveries (trade only) from its Fivemiletown, Toome, Dungannon, Carryduff and Ballygawley production plants.
“To organise a collection or delivery customers must contact us in advance on 028 8778 4208 or firstname.lastname@example.org (Ireland customers) and 01217470202 or GBsales@ag.uk.com (GB customers). Given the ongoing concerns around the containment of the virus, we would ask that no one arrives at any of our locations without having first made an arrangement to do so.”
The AG CEO added that the business was also poised to recommence manufacturing. “We briefed all staff this morning that our executive team is currently finalising plans for a phased recommencement of manufacturing – with strict hygiene and social distancing rules in place. This is all about little, solid, sensible steps, but we are determined to play our part to get our economy moving again.”
