Surfachem / 2M Group Brexit response

June 2019

With the United Kingdom’s intended withdrawal from the European Union, there is still seemingly little certainty as to what terms this exit will be under. As a result Surfachem has implemented a number of contingency measures to mitigate against any interruptions to supply.

  • We have committed to over £1M additional inventory on our core range of specialities, which we risk assessed as being at the greatest risk of supply chain interruption.
  • We have expanded our warehousing capacity in order to take on this additional stock.
  • As an international business, with a multinational workforce, we continue to work closely with all our colleagues to ensure there is no risk of business interruption as a result of any changes in the right to remain of any of our employees based in the UK.
  • We have previously communicated to customers on the need to forecast anticipated demand, to ensure that sufficient product is on hand and in the supply chain.
  • We have successfully applied for a license to export duel-use goods in the case of a no deal scenario.
  • Our regulatory team will continue to provide guidance and support on BPR, REACh and other relevant regulatory frameworks as these become clear.

Surfachem has a long history of import and export on a global basis. As patrons of the Export Exchange, we retain a considerable degree of expertise in global trade. We have, as a part of the 2M Group, been acquisitive in recent years with the business establishing operations in Belgium, Germany, Poland and Norway, all of which further enable us to ensure security of supply to our principals, suppliers and customers in all of the 67 countries we trade with. Regardless of the UK political dynamic in March 2019, Surfachem will continue to offer industry leading knowledge, insight, innovation and service.

Should you have any questions, wish us to ensure specific products are available for your business or need support in any of the areas outlined above, we will be happy to help
