Wake-up call

There cannot be many people left – either in the industry or even in society as a whole – who believe they will be unaffected by Brexit but Mila supply chain director Oliver Burgess fears some fabricators may be among them and he is warning them they could be facing delays and stock shortages if their suppliers haven’t woken up to the risk of disruption. And as if the issue for trading within the EU isn’t complicated enough, Oliver adds that Chinese New Year can have dire implications of its own for the hardware industry. Read Letter

We Have Email

From: Oliver Burgess,
Supply Chain Director, Mila

There are less than six months to go now until the UK officially leaves the EU at 11pm on 29th March 2019.

While we still don’t have any clear indication of what the Brexit outcome will actually look like, there’s no doubt any change to the status quo is likely to cause disruption to this industry’s supply chains, and could potentially affect every single one of us to a greater or lesser degree.
