The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to increase and as such, we wanted to share with you our Business Continuation Plan and how we aim to support you.

The health and well-being of our staff and their families is a priority so we have instigated a social distancing plan which involves, amongst other measures, various members of our Engineering team working from home. Engineers can be contacted in the usual way, i.e. calling the office where your call will be transferred to them or alternatively by calling their mobiles directly. Our office and warehouse remain open and operational as usual, all existing employees can be contacted in the usual way during normal office hours. We will continue to monitor the Governments advice in terms of home working but we can assure you that all of our team remain fully functional with all the necessary equipment to continue to deliver our usual service to you, with minimal disruption.

As you will appreciate part of our service often includes site visits and face-to-face meetings. To avoid the need to meet or travel during this crisis DESSA will strive to use technology, including video, mapping and conferencing to maintain the support you require. We appreciate that these are confusing and difficult times, but we want to reassure you that we are still here to support you and your business.

DESSA hope you are staying safe and healthy and we look forward to working with you in a Covid19 free future. General enquiries :- Transport and Administration contact Admin, Engineering contact Engineering or to talk to a member of staff telephone +44 (0) 1480 475297.
