• 14 day self-quarantine for anyone who has recently returned to their home country from international travel
• Remote working – employees who can work from home are being encouraged to do so
• Cancellation of large meetings – meetings greater than 10 people are being avoided, in favour of video conferencing

Bradken also takes its Business Continuity Planning very seriously.
As a global organisation the impacts on our business are and will be varied. We are assessing our supply chains to ensure we have what we need to continue to support our customers operations.
Customers are being asked to provide an update to their Bradken sales representatives on their business continuity and/or closures to support our review and managing the delivery of any current orders.

As a result, Bradken’s foundry facility in Merlimau, Malaysia, which manufactures a range of mineral processing products, will temporarily cease operations from Wednesday 18 March for two weeks.
Customers will be contacted directly if this temporary interruption has the potential to affect orders.
At this stage all Bradken’s other facilities remain operational.
