Sunseeker International has announced it will be implementing a phased return to work for all its employees starting as early as next week.
Given the complexity of operations, the employees will be brought back in a controlled manner, with safety measures in place, moving towards full production over the next few weeks.
By re-starting production and implementing a catch up plan, Sunseeker hopes to deliver boats previously in build, and on order from across the world, so that the new owners can use them this season.
Andrea Frabetti, CEO says: “We are excited to be getting back to work. Our goal now is to achieve safe efficient production over the coming weeks so we can deliver boats to our customers who understandably, are keen to get afloat this summer. We are fortunate to be able to return to work, to do what we love and deliver on the passion we all have for this industry. Now, more than ever, the country needs us to do what we do best which will help deliver exports and support the economy. As a proud UK manufacturer, we are eager to play our own small part in returning it to prosperity.”
Working in close cooperation with all departments, Sunseeker’s in-house Health & Safety team has defined strict protocols, working practices and guidelines for all employees to support the very safest environment, wherever they work within the business.
As well as the issuing and guidance of how to use PPE, factories have been laid out with one-way systems and wide thoroughfares to ensure social distancing is maintained. Additional hygiene and cleaning stations have been introduced companywide to ensure equipment and tools can be methodically cleaned while boats are sanitized thoroughly at every stage of production and then ‘deep-cleaned’ again prior to hand-over.
