Planex : COVID-19 update 3

09 . 04 . 2020

To Our Valued Customers, Suppliers and Friends,

I guess that after the last month or so, you are all looking forward to a few stress-free days in splendid isolation. I know we are.

Ironically, the last two-week period leading into Easter has been one of our busiest in quite a while and we have been fortunate to receive wonderful support from our loyal customers as well as creating some new exciting business relationships. It seems to be a good time to be local!

While it is certainly not business as usual, we are pleased to be providing our sales, administration and production team with ongoing jobs that help keep our local economy functioning normally with real money from real wages and providing all our employees with a sense of purpose.

We are gratified to be still providing our customers with quality Australian-made products that benefits our economy and to be able to do so in a cost-effective and timely manner.

We feel that it is incumbent on us to play our role in maintaining a strong local manufacturing presence, so that when this crisis is finally over, there is a solid base left to rebuild upon. It’s easier to recover from a sound base than to start again from scratch (if at all possible!).

We remain well and are continuing to monitor, follow and continually adapt to all the guidelines given out by the relevant Australian Government authorities.

Wishing you all a safe and relaxing Easter break and may you fully embrace the enforced social isolation and enjoy the chocolate pandemic ... the only good one there is.

Jean-Pierre.
