A Message from the Managing Director

Another week has rushed by at BCB International. Our team has increased to meet the expectations of the NHS, without impacting on our service to you our customers.

We join the nation in sending birthday greetings to Colonel Tom and congratulations to the Prime Minister and Carrie on the birth of their son. Whilst we welcome the government news that the coronavirus is “past its peak” and on a “downward slope”, I am hesitant to celebrate too early. The risk of COVID-19 raising its head within weeks of the end of the lockdown is too likely. Because of this concern we shall be continuing with our safety measures BCB has in place and our offices and factories will continue with separate shifts.

I urge you all to take care and only celebrate when we are truly in the clear.

Stay safe,

Andrew Howell
Managing Director
