Drumgrange COVID-19 and Brexit Statement

Drumgrange, like many other organisations, has been working hard on Brexit planning within the bounds of a COVID-19 world. COVID-19 has made us adapt to new ways of operating, such as digitalisation of the workplace and home working. Drumgrange, from the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic, implemented a robust response and initiated safeguards to protect our staff, contractors, customers and suppliers in line with UK Government guidelines. These measures have enabled Drumgrange to continue operating from a “business as usual” position with only minimal impact on capacity throughout 2020 and will hopefully continue to do so through 2021.
