H&T Batteries | Our response to COVID-19

Our response to COVID-19

With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, H&T Batteries would like to update our customers and suppliers on the actions we have taken to ensure we continue to manufacture our battery components.

First and foremost, the safety of our workers and employees are of an upmost priority and since the outbreak began, all social distancing measures and local government guidelines were strictly followed. Site management met regularly to ensure safety measures continued to be in place as per the changing situation of COVID-19 whilst ensuring the continuity and security of supply.

Our Alkaline business has been classed as a key business which has continued to manufacture our range of alkaline battery components throughout the pandemic and our supply to those customers has been uninterrupted. Furthermore, our regional plant managers were able to secure government approvals through strict hygienic requirements and social distancing procedures. Therefore, we are especially applauding our teams in Marsberg, Waterbury, Dongguan and Singapore to continuously produce components at a regular pace whilst even taking on additional shifts.

Our site management and executive management team continue to constantly review the situation and will make any changes necessary to how we are operating if needed. The health and safety of our employees is still our number one priority therefore our office employees are working from home and will continue to do so until further notice.

Finally, H&T Batteries would like to thank its employees for their continued support, commitment and work ethic during this unsettling time in order to keep our plants running so we can meet our business demands. We would also like to thank the continued support and dedication of our suppliers and customers that ensure we can keep doing what we do as we get through this unsettling time together.

Above all, health is what matters right now. Please stay safe.
