  • Kimpton Brexit Statement

    The decision made by the UK to leave the European Union or ‘Brexit’ as it has become known, means that we must embrace the challenges that this decision will bring. In order to ensure our business is sustainable, we have put into effect a number of strategies which will ensure the strongest possible outcome for our company as the transition away form the EU membership takes place.

    Inevitably there is still a great deal of uncertainty as the Brexit negotiations take place and therefore our plans are intended to allow for a degree of flexibility in the interim period. Assurances have been made by the government regarding Brexit, yet it is impossible to predict the final outcome.

    Whilst we do not directly import from within or outside of the EU some of our supply chain do on our behalf.

    There has been a lot of speculation in the media about the possibility of congestion at British and EU ports in the immediate aftermath of Brexit. The speculation is based on the expected necessity for additional paperwork to be completed on goods transiting through the ports, the worst-case scenario being that there could be limited movement of goods between the UK and the EU for the months of January and February 2020.

    In the event of a no-deal the UK have committed to ensure UK legislation replaces EU legislation via the EU withdrawal act, establish a UK regulatory framework and build domestic capacity to deliver the functions currently performed by ECHA. The legislation would preserve REACH as far as possible, well making technical changes that would need to be made because the UK has left the EU.

    Kimpton have requested from our supply chain members that they put actions in place to maintain high levels of stock in the UK prior to the leaving date based on market demand. Principles are supporting us with the availability of extra forecasting capacity for their products where possible. We are asking that our customers work with us by forecasting demand and plan in advance the order volumes for 2021 where possible. Placing call off / forward planning orders will allow us to ensure adequate stocks already in situ as well as fixing pricing for the start of 2021.

    We hope that this statement answers the main concerns that you may have during this period of uncertainty. If you have additional queries or would like clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Yours Sincerely

    Colin Swanick

    Director
