Wetherby talks preparing for Brexit

  • 27 Mar 2019

With the future for the UK looking very uncertain in regards to Brexit, Wetherby Building Systems is focusing on the importance of preparing for whatever may happen.

What challenges await us?

  • Wetherby is prepared for “No Deal”, but delays are not inconceivable.
  • Depending on how strict the authorities act, waiting times on products from suppliers out of the UK could cause severe delays.
  • Preparation is necessary! The lack or inaccuracy of data and documents will lead to delays.
  • How are we getting prepared?

Wetherby has been working extremely hard to prepare for March 29th. Over the last 6 months, Wetherby has been stockpiling a wide range of its products sourced out of the UK in preparation of severe delays. Whilst all of its insulation is UK sourced, most of its thin coat systems, beads and fixings are manufactured in Europe and Wetherby os aiming to reduce delivery problems by planning ahead. 

Wetherby benefits from a vast amount of extra warehouse space at its Head Office in Golborne, which enables it to hold an extra 3 months of stock. In preparation, Wetherby also has the following due in before 29th March:

  • Over £500k of extra stock in the warehouse network
  • 50,000 bags of basecoat
  • 15,000 tubs of topcoat
  • 200,000m2 of scrim 
  • Over 4 million brick slips
  • Additional storage of 400 pallets – offsite

If you have any project due to start in the coming months, Wetherby highly recommends you contact them in advance to advise on your material requests.
