Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Please be advised that Turpin is closely monitoring the government guidelines and activating appropriate emergency measures to ensure the welfare and safety of our staff. We are committed to maintaining our service to all client publishers and their customers. Turpin already has a robust remote access system in place and so we have been able to set-up home working for many members of staff. The Turpin Team is fully focused on ensuring business continuity for all clients during this difficult period. We anticipate the most likely operational impact will be in our warehouse and the supply chain, where increasing levels of absence could impact capacity and delay to inbound deliveries and outbound orders. Should this situation arise we have contingency plans in place to operate at a lower capacity. This is a very fluid situation with frequent changes being made to the government guidelines. We will continue to adjust our procedures in line with any changes to the guidelines and at the same time keeping you fully informed of any developments that may impact on our service.

During the new lockdown restrictions imposed by the UK government, it may take longer than usual to answer your telephone call. We encourage you to contact us via email during this time and we will respond to your query as quickly as possible.
