It isn’t the start of the year that any of us had hoped for, but we remain optimistic that the roll out of the vaccine programme will help speed up the process of restoring some semblance of normal home and working lives for everyone. For now, however, we continue to face the challenges of another national lockdown.
Unlike the early days of the first lockdown, construction sites are able to carry on working and tradespeople can also continue to work in other people’s homes. The key to all of this is the adherence to strict Covid secure guidelines, and across the Scolmore group of companies we have the strictest measures in place to ensure that the safety of our staff, customers and suppliers remains a top priority.
Difficulty in getting hold of some products continues to be an issue for many sectors, but Scolmore can reassure its customers and end users that we are able to continue to supply our full range of products to the professional electrical market.
The company’s ability to always hold vast stock levels means that we are able to fulfil orders from across the group, with our full range of wiring accessories from http://www.scolmore.com, lighting and lighting control products from http://www.oviauk.com, security and fire protection products from http://www.espuk.com and cable accessory products from http://www.unicrimp.com all currently available.
As we saw in the first lockdown, there is an appetite for learning and plenty of opportunities to remotely access the latest industry news and developments, get up to speed with recent new product developments and legislation, and for individuals to take on some training to enhance their skill set.
Across the Scolmore Group of companies there is a wealth of resources that contractors and wholesalers can access. Each group company website hosts a vast range of products, including range catalogues as well as technical specification brochures. Product videos that make it easy to understand the workings of individual products can be accessed on YouTube. There are case studies demonstrating how products from the group have been specified and installed to provide solutions for specific projects and these include the recent use of our Mode antimicrobial wiring accessories at a newly expanded emergency care unit. The ‘in the press’ sections provide some in depth articles covering a range of topics from smart solutions, to fire-rated downlights safety.
Scolmore Group’s dedicated YouTube channel – SGTV – features insightful interviews with contractors who are giving their views on some of the issues they face on the job and how they have overcome them.
Last year the Scolmore App was updated to incorporate all the businesses within the group. This means users can now access the full range of products and services from Scolmore, Ovia, ESP and Unicrimp – with just one click.
Our technical teams are available during working hours to help with any queries and can be contacted by phone or by email.
