Brexit has caused significant unrest in a number of UK industries as companies scramble to accommodate new laws, guidelines, and duties. The adhesive industry has been no exception, and here at Bondchem we have been doing everything possible to ensure a seamless transition into our new normal.
We would like to reassure our customers that we have taken measures to ensure our compliance with all regulatory procedures, such as UK REACH rules. At Bondchem, we see Europe as a partner and we will not stop progressing our business into the European marketplace. In order to ensure minimal disruption to our customers we have taken preparatory steps. Despite any potential duty that may be placed on good leaving the UK, Bondchem has been busy upscaling and reducing our costs in order to maintain prices for our customers. To reiterate – there will be NO CHANGE in pricing for our export customers; any duty will be covered on our end of processes.
Furthermore, new border regulations and checks are expected to cause teething problems that will likely be reflected in delays on goods leaving the UK and entering the EU. Here at Bondchem, we have been busy reducing our overall lead time in order to compensate for any potential delays at the border.
We would like to emphasise that Bondchem is, and will remain, a customer-oriented business, and we will do everything in our power to minimise any impact on our customers. If any of our customers have questions or concerns regarding the upcoming transition period, do not hesitate to contact us.
