SHAPE has been in discussions with suppliers to ensure production remains stable with sufficient contingency stock.

Managing Director, Ryan Muller said “We have been closely working with our suppliers to ensure we have options going forward. Suppliers have informed us formally that they have re-sourced components and materials from operating manufacturing plants as well as us discussing contingency stock for the next 2-3 months as a minimum”.

SHAPE machine patterns for the Aerospace, Automotive and Motorsport industries as well as 5 axis machining foams and Carbon composite materials.

Muller added “Whilst the possibility of a UK “lock-down” as has happened in other countries is possible, we are doing everything we can to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum. We are using split shifts as well as encouraging home working to be as flexible as possible with our staff”.
