COVID-19 – Update – 31st March 2020
Heeelo Dearest Proto-PIC-ers
We want to assure you that Proto-PIC is still operational, and that all orders are going out daily as usual. We will update this message should this change at any point.
As you may have heard the Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to spread and I want to let you know that our thoughts are with each of you during this time. It is critical that we all take care of each other during this highly trying time.
In in order to keep our valued staff as safe as possible we are operating with almost everyone working from home. There is now no more than 1 of us allowed in the office at any one time, so it may be harder to get through to us on the phones than usual but don’t panic emails are being manned as per normal.
The good news is that, while working from home our engineers will be developing new products and gadgets to play with for the coming months!
It is also worth noting that there may be slight delays in receiving back-ordered goods, we will of course do our best to limit the disruption and to communicate to you on any lengthy delays.
Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe people.
