RWC COVID-19 Update

ASX Announcement

25 March 2020


Currently, RWC manufacturing facilities and distribution centres in Australia, USA and the UK remain operational. RWC’s channel partners in Australia and USA are continuing to trade and serve end‐use customers. Government restrictions in the UK and New Zealand appear to be limiting sales to products used for essential repair and maintenance works and for critical infrastructure. Similar restrictions in parts of Canada, however, have now been relaxed and in all markets the situation remains fluid and subject to changing government requirements.

Operations Update

RWC’s top priority is to protect everyone’s health and safety. We have assembled a COVID‐19 response task force and are continually monitoring the situation. Changes have been made to operating procedures at all our plants and distribution centres to minimise potential exposure to COVID‐19 and, where possible and appropriate, employees are working remotely from home. Employee travel has been curtailed, including travel between RWC facilities. Given the rapidly changing COVID‐19 situation, we are communicating with our customers periodically about any operational changes that may be required. With our in‐house manufacturing capabilities, global supply chain and robust inventory positions, we currently remain confident in our ability to service customer needs.
