Spellman’s January Update on Brexit StrategyDear Valued Customer,
BREXIT has created concern for many businesses importing and exporting to/from the UK & Northern Ireland as the market awaits the outcome of important elements affecting the Customs Union. The European market is a very important part of the Spellman High Voltage business and as such our teams are assessing the business risks and providing recommendations on investment strategies in order to mitigate potential impacts. Our focus has been on resources, supply chain, inventory and warehouse capacity and we will leverage our global footprint to ensure a seamless transition no matter the future relationship between the UK and EU.
Spellman High Voltage Electronics is already able to support complex export requirements to many countries inside and outside of the EU and is CTPAT certified by the US Department of Homeland Security and Border Protection. Our UK operations are already registered as an Approved Exporter by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs and have submitted their application to become AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) certified, to support the ease of movement of goods through complex security & export controls throughout Europe. Spellman High Voltage are in communication with all our key freight partners to ensure that we are meeting all the up to date requirements necessary to limit impact to our customers.
It is very important that we understand our customers' challenges and concerns as well as their own readiness plans. Our intention is to provide ongoing communication concerning any updates as soon as we become aware of them.
