What changes have Cox Automotive implemented due to the coronavirus emergency?
We have very robust and well established COVID-secure processes and working practices in place throughout the business. These include social distancing measures, the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), colleagues working from home where possible and restricted access to our sites.
The measures in place are appropriate to each business area and are regularly reviewed in line with the latest Government guidance.
Our highest priority remains the safety and wellbeing of all employees, customers, contractors and suppliers.
Please refer to our current operational update (available in this section or via our news page) for the latest on each business area.
We hope you understand the actions we have taken - and will continue to take - are highly necessary and responsible courses of action.
