Covers Timber and Builders Merchants in Burgess Hill welcomed Mid Sussex MP and Minister for Employment, Mims Davies, for a tour of its depot on Friday 9 October.
The tour was conducted by Covers’ managing director Henry Green, the depot manager of Burgess Hill, Terry Lace, and timber director, Neil Woods.
Green said: “It was a pleasure welcoming Mims to our Burgess Hill depot. We were pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate how we have adapted to the new working conditions with Covid secure premises. We also highlighted the strength of Covers as an independent family-owned business during the pandemic”.
Davies said: “It was fantastic to visit Covers in Burgess Hill to see all the adaptations it has put in place to continue to trade safely. It has been incredibly difficult for businesses to operate and plan this year with the ongoing challenges of Covid.
“It was great to see Covers delivering superb products and services to customers at near pre pandemic levels and with the increase in home and garden improvement projects taking place in Mid Sussex during the pandemic, protecting local jobs. It was also very encouraging to hear that home offices are having a positive impact on sales.”
