Howdens is a long term business built on relationships of trust. We are always focused on our people and our customers, and their safety is paramount.
In light of the new Government guidance, and in order to protect the wellbeing of our people and our customers, we have decided to close temporarily all our UK depots with immediate effect. Our depots in Continental Europe are also closed.
We will continue to review the new guidance as it emerges and will update further in due course. We will seek to explore ways in which we can support our customers.
Our staff, our customers and our communities are our number one concern.
