WAI is moving to daily bulletins to customers and encouraging two way communication. The company has also begun assisting motor factors, who are suffering from staff shortages, with a direct supply of product to garages as they are set up to supply one product. Due to its global footprint, the company is responding to increased demand for facemasks from motor factors and is able to provide these to companies with very short lead times.
With no minimum order quantity, WAI continues to benefit from high stock levels from its UK warehouse and orders are processed and distributed as normal.
WAIglobal UK MD Richard Welland, in his role as IAAF vice-president, is currently supporting chief executive Wendy Williamson on IAAF’s activity during this crisis.
